On May 19-20, 2014 a working meeting of the project takes place at the Lapland University of Applied Sciences in Rovaniemi, Finland. The main issue of the meeting is discussion on the project publication which will include articles by experts from participating organizations. Theoretical aspects of physical, psychological and social health of school children as well as practical examples of e-health systems in schools will be presented in this collection of articles. In addition, the NArFU partners will present a pilot version of the Russian-language web page of the project, containing publications, PowerPoint presentations and video lectures.

The key objective of ArctiChildren InNet is to improve the physical, emotional and social health of pupils, and to enhance intercultural communication on the base of cultural identity through the use of information and communication technologies. The website created during the project gives the opportunity to obtain useful information as well as on-line experts’ consultations in various fields. An important feature of the site is its international focus; it connects pupils from Russia, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
