Arctic Views was done as collaboration between Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Bodø University College, Murmansk Humanities Institute and Sakha State University of Russia in the Spring 2009. Arctic Views was done and published for the first time in April with the University of the Arctic and can be found at www.uarctic.org/arcticviews
The ezine presents life in the arctic region from a wide perspective and especially from the young people’s point of view. The topics are concentrated on Norway, Finland and Russia and show the differences for example in ways of life and nature in the region.
The objective of the ezine is to grow into a comprehensive archive which offers diverse and interesting information about life in the arctic region. The content of the articles is aimed to stand the passing of time so that the ezine will be an excellent source of information also in the future.
The first ezine was done by six students from Norway and three students from Russia. During the project the students spent 3-4 weeks in Oulu where they started planning and producing the ezine. The students continued writing articles also in their home countries after their exchange period.
Arctic Views is coordinated and produced by Oulu University of Applied Sciences and University of the Arctic.
