  • Theme: POPs and Chemicals of Emerging Arctic Concern (CEACs) in the Arctic under Climate Change

Once in the environment, POPs and CEACs disperse into air, water, soils and sediments in the Arctic, and can be taken up by Arctic biota. Many of the processes that determine the environmental fate of POPs and CEACs and their potential for uptake and bioaccumulation in food webs can be influenced by climate change.

As young generations and future elites in different disciplines and fields from China and the eight Arctic countries, our goals on the Arctic are to understand, protect, develop and participate in the governance of the Arctic. To understand human health in the Arctic is the important step to reach the goal.

Sponsored by the International Program Office, Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), The 2021 winter School will be held on line by the International Arctic School, HIT (IAS-HIT) on the topic of “POPs and Chemicals of Emerging Arctic Concern (CEACs) in the Arctic under Climate Change” during January 4-17, 2021.
