IASC's Action Group on Carbon Footprint (AGCF) seeks your input!
Wednesday 21 April 2021
Location Online

318 AGCF Workshop PosterWe need your input on how IASC should mitigate climate change!

Acknowledging the link between anthropogenic carbon emissions and rapid changes in the Arctic, including the Arctic amplification of climate change, IASC has recently convened an Action Group on Carbon Footprint (AGCF). The remit of the AGCF is to facilitate a full organisational response to the climate crisis and to explore ways to minimise the carbon footprint of IASC-related activities themselves. As an organisation promoting research and transnational access in the Arctic, we have a duty to mitigate the impacts of our activities, as well as to lead the way.

We wish to take into account the broad perspectives, needs and requirements of both researchers and wider stakeholders in our recommendations. With this in mind, we are holding an event to launch our consultation with the community. To maximise the opportunity for input, we will run this community event twice, on

08:00 – 10:00 hrs GMT, Wednesday 21 April 2021, (register here: )
18:00 – 20:00 hrs GMT, Wednesday 21 April 2021 (register here:

At the workshop, we will present the remit of the AGCF, seek feedback from participants, and discuss recommendations. We would like to encourage anyone with an interest in IASC activities to join us to help tackle this crisis in the best way we can, whilst continuing to support excellent science and capacity-building.
