The SSSI will organize a side-meeting to the Svalbard Science Conference 2019 at Scandic Fornebu, Oslo, on November 4th 2019.

The workshop will bring together people from the local communities in Svalbard and researchers from the social sciences, arts and humanities studying the human dimension of living in Svalbard. Together we will look at the past, present and future of living on Svalbard and present current research projects that focus on the human dimensions of the dynamic changes underway there.

Through workshops and group discussions, we aim to strengthen the ways in which social science and humanities research can work with and for the Community, as well as to consolidate the network and plan future activities.

The SSSI workshop is supported by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC), and funded by the Svalbard Science Forum.
