The ACAF project is inviting young innovators aged 18-30 from Barents regions in Finland, Sweden and Norway to apply for an immersive hackathon experience to be held on 3 October 2023 in Rovaniemi, Finland. It is a transformative side event connected to the Barents Forest Forum 2023. Together, selected 20 young participants will identify key challenges within forest management, biodiversity, and/or climate change in the Arctic, and develop creative solutions that address these issues head-on. The outcomes of the hackathon will be presented and discussed at the Barents Forest Forum. Applications are invited by 12 September 2023.
