Registration is now officially open, and undergraduate students from any university in the world are eligible to participate. Students from Trent University, as well as the universities of the Scottish-Arctic Network—Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow School of Art, Heriot-Watt University, Robert Gordon University, and the universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Highlands and Islands, St Andrews and Strathclyde—are especially encouraged to take part.
SCOTMAC 2 features expert teaching and guidance from Arctic specialists, three days of simulated Arctic diplomacy at which to hone valuable speaking and consensus-building skills, and social events at which to build lasting friendships with fellow students from universities in Scotland, the rest of the UK, and beyond. SCOTMAC 2 is one of the few Model Arctic Council conferences in the world today designed with undergraduates in mind. It is open to students studying any subject.
SCOTMAC 2 is an educational initiative of Polar Aspect and the Scottish-Arctic Network, hosted in March 2023 by Glasgow Caledonian University in collaboration with Trent University, with funding from the Scottish Government Arctic Connections Fund.
