Climate change is raising profound challenges at every level, and to every part and member of society. Confronting and resolving issues regarding both causes and consequences of climate change is of utmost urgency. This calls for collaboration and knowledge-sharing that crosses disciplines and borders. We therefore invite undergraduate and graduate students from all countries and academic disciplines to participate in the first-ever Bergen International Student Conference on the theme "Climate and Society: Transformations in the 21st Century".

We urge participants to seek out financial assistance regarding accommodation and travel expenses at their institutions.

If you have any questions regarding the conference, send an email to collaboratory@uib.no.
