We need help creating illustrations for a new free middle school magazine, Polynya! Polynya aims to activate a culture shift among middle school students to see women as trailblazers of Arctic Indigenous, traditional, and western sciences. We need six general graphics to use in our "Role Models" section featuring current women working in polar science & Traditional Knowledge to illustrate where they are from, career journey, earliest science memory, biggest fail, pets and their advice to teens!
We want girls to see themselves in every corner of the polar sciences, Traditional and Indigenous Knowledges, research, advocacy, arts, and change-making community. With your help, Polynya will illuminate polar research and achievements by those who identify as women and those who were designated female but self-identify differently across all races and ethnicities.
TAI envisions a world in which the Arctic’s diverse and complex sources of insecurity are identified, understood, and innovatively resolved. We hope to achieve this by informing Arctic policy across the circumpolar region through objective, multidisciplinary, and innovative social science research. We do this through publishing high-quality, open access research on a range of issues relating to security in the High North; providing innovative policy analysis and recommendations to policymakers a
The Arctic Institute is an independent international institute dedicated to research of and engagement in the many dimensions of Arctic insecurity. Established in 2011, TAI provides data, analysis, and recommendations to policymakers, researchers, media, and the interested public.
