The course brings together a broad range of transdisciplinary information on the challenges and developments taking place in Arctic coastal communities. Students also learn basic methodologies for thinking about the future: techniques that are commonly used in private and public organizations. In a workshop, we apply these foresight methods in creating future scenarios for northern coastal settlements. The scenarios are to allow students to develop and integrated view on developments, understand what is known, what is by nature uncertain and what we still need to learn in order to better understand the drivers and dynamics of change in the Arctic.
