POPs and Chemicals of Emerging Arctic Concern (CEACs) in the Arctic under Climate Change

12-25 July 2021, Harbin, China

1. Introduction

 The interaction between the Arctic natural environment and human society is very close, and the Arctic act as a special role in the study of global environmental change. Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and Chemicals of Emerging Arctic Concern (CEACs) are ubiquitous in various environmental media in the Arctic. These pollutants are concentrated through the food chain and accumulated in human and organisms in the Arctic region, causing potential hazards to the local population and ecosystem.

 The theme of the 2021 Arctic Summer School of the School of environment is " POPs and CEACs in the Arctic under Climate Change ". Through the study of relevant courses, students can understand the pollution characteristics and sources of POPs and CEACs in various environmental media in the Arctic, as well as the impact of Arctic environmental pollution on human and biological health in the Arctic. 

 Harbin Institute of technology is located in the northeast of China and has obvious geographical advantages. In February 2019, the "UArctic-HIT-Training Center" was established, which is the first UArctic regional center outside the eight Arctic countries.

2.Opening Date
