Every person – child, youth and adult – shall be able to benefit from educational opportunities designed to meet their basic learning needs.

World Declaration on Education for All


The purpose of the project on Teachers of the Arctic is double:

  • first, to modernize the Education system by training a new type of teacher – a teacher prepared to meet the challenges of minority cultures and languages and to inculcate an awareness of environmental issues in young people; and
  • second, lay the foundations for what, it is hoped, will be a partnership with countries having circumpolar populations.
Given the considerable potential of ICT to alleviate some of the problems of Arctic isolation, the project will include a component in which ICT user competencies will be clarified and incorporated into the skill profile of future teachers.
