About this course

The Korea Arctic Academy, hosted by the Korean Ministry of Oceans & Fisheries and co-organized by the Korea Maritime Institute (KMI), is an initiative to facilitate exchanges between students from both the Arctic region and Korea to develop and share a common Arctic vision.

It aims to spread knowledge on sustainable Arctic development and ocean management and promote understanding of the Arctic indigenous peoples.

The Korea Maritime Institute serves as a Secretariat of the Academy. The program of the Korea Arctic Academy usually consists of lectures on Arctic issues, given by international or Korean experts, and field trips to Arctic-related organizations, research institutions, and industrial sites in Korea.

Due to the extraordinary situation caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made decision to call off the physical gathering of the Korea Arctic Academy in Busan and replaced it with an online course for 2 weeks from the 7th Korea Arctic Academy.

This year we intend to provide courses to Korean and UArctic students real-time online lectures on Arctic and conduct real-time conferences to strengthen interactive communication between Korean and UArctic students. We also would like to provide recorded lecture videos for students who will not be able to attend the real-time lectures due to the time difference.

The focus of lectures this year includes: Arctic Policy, International Arctic Governance, Korea Arctic Policy, Climate Change in the Arctic, Arctic Society and Indigenous Peoples, Innovations in the Arctic, and Arctic Sustainable Economy.

And finally, we are planning to invite and provide travel grants to 4 outstanding students to the 2024 Arctic Partnership Week in Busan in December 2024. (*2 International students, 2 Korean students.) The Arctic Partnership Week has been organized annually since 2016. During its existence, the event has focused on Arctic policy, science, technology, shipping, energy, and resources.

The 10th Korea Arctic Academy will begin on July 5 and end on July 12.
