The course was given jointly by University of Helsinki, Agricultural University of Iceland, University of Iceland, Aarhus University, Lund University, Estonian University of Life Sciences, University of Eastern Finland, University of Oulu, Technical University of Denmark, University of Greenland, and Greenland Climate Research Centre.

The students worked in project groups on topics related to climate change and the effect on local Arctic communities. The project work was based on lectures given online before the course and lectures given during the course. For the final evaluation the students made a small presentation of their project.
