The magazine takes a look at education in the context of Arctic and especially UArctic cooperation. We highlight concrete examples from UArctic Thematic Networks and our member institutions, focusing on the importance of education and educational collaboration in building sustainable livelihoods in the North. The magazine also features several student experiences, a joint follow-up piece from former north2north exchange students, as well as full articles written by current students.

Shared Voices 2018 is officially launched at the UArctic Congress 2018 which takes place in Oulu and Helsinki, September 3-7. Congress participants can get copies from the UArctic info desk.

You can read Shared Voices 2018 as individual articles, in your browser via Issuu, or download the entire magazine in PDF format.
