Arctic Speaker Series

Each year, AINA hosts the Arctic Speaker Series where we invite local and international speakers to the University of Calgary to give talks on a wide variety of topics. Many of these talks have been recorded and are available to watch on our YouTube channel.

Arctic in the Classroom

Throughout the year AINA researchers visit elementary school classrooms across southern Alberta to help children explore the Arctic and Inuit culture through Inuit artifacts.

*Due to COVID-19 we are unable to visit classes for the foreseeable future. 

The Arctic in the Classroom ambassadors are currently working to create virtual teaching resources so that we can engage with as many students as possible.
