The project SVALUR – Understanding Resilience and Long-Term Environmental Change in the High Arctic: Narrative-Based Analyses from Svalbard will combine environmental monitoring and people’s knowledge on environmental change on Svalbard. On September 22nd, the project team and SSSI members met online to get to know each other and to discuss future collaborations and knowledge-exchange between SVALUR and already ongoing research on people’s experiences of environmental change on Svalbard. We warmly welcome the SVALUR team to the SSSI and look forward to working together!
