Arctic Climate Change Youth Forum (ACCYF)
Every two years, Schools on Board co-hosts a youth forum that coincides with an international science meeting or conference. This one-day event includes interactive presentations and workshops delivered by scientists and researchers introducing secondary high school students and their teachers to Arctic climate change research. In addition to science, the day will also include the northern perspective on climate change as well as political discussions on the role of science and Inuit knowledge in policy and decision-making.

This year, Schools on Board has partnered with Canterbury High School, the Canadian Museum of Nature and Students on Ice for the 2014 Arctic Climate Change Forum.
