Want to learn more about climate change in the Arctic?

The first Harvard course to focus on the Arctic, IGA 671M: Policy and Social Innovation for the Changing Arctic emphasizes creative thinking about solutions to pressing Arctic issues. The course is taught by Arctic Initiative Co-Founder Halla Logadóttir and supported by Co-Director John Holdren and Senior Fellow Cristine Russell. Students are individually mentored by senior Arctic experts as they research a policy area of concern and develop their own innovative and interdisciplinary solutions. Op-eds written by students about their ideas are regularly published in Arctic Today, and the top students travel to the annual Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik to pitch their ideas in the Arctic Innovation Lab.
