On 31 October - 5 November in Salekhard Tomsk State University with partners will hold an interactive workshop “Winter Weather and Climate Extremes: how can researchers, authorities and local peoples work together to record, predict and adapt?"

On 31 October - 5 November, in Salekhard, Tomsk State University, in partnership with the Government of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District and the UK Science and Innovation Network in Russia (SIN Russia), will hold an interactive workshop  “Winter Weather and Climate Extremes: how can researchers, authorities and local peoples work together to record, predict and adapt?”. The event is the 2nd Siberian Environmental Change Network (SecNet) Workshop.

The workshop will bring together Russian, UK-based and international researchers, decision makers, indigenous peoples and local residents working in Siberia.

The event will address challenges associated with extreme weather events that are occurring at greater frequency and with greater intensity in the Arctic region. It will provide a platform for information exchange on extreme weather events, climate change and their impacts and help strengthen and develop joined-up work between the different stakeholder groups. 

Venue: Government Building, Salekhard, Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District

Time: 31 October-5 November, 2017

About “Siberian Environmental Change Network”

To understand the changes in environment of planet Earth, we need to understand the rapidly changing Arctic. To understand the Arctic, we need to understand the changes in its largest and most environmentally diverse landmass -  Siberia. Despite numerous research activities by Russian and Foreign scientists in Siberia, a coherent picture remains largely unavailable to the Russian and global communities of past, current and projected environmental changes, their drivers and societal consequences. However, the societal consequences of changes in the Siberian environment and its resources are likely to have implications for the global community as well as for local residents. To improve our understanding of current and likely changes in the Siberia and their wider consequences, Tomsk State University established the “Siberian Environmental Change Network” ( ) which held its inaugural meeting in Tomsk in October 2016. The meeting’s topic was “Impact of climate change on Siberia: detecting, understanding and predicting Siberian Environmental Change and its Societal Consequences”. 

About UK Science and Innovation Network in Russia (SIN Russia)

SIN Russia was established at the British Embassy in Moscow in 2010. The team works to enhance strong, sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships between scientists, research communities and institutions in the UK and Russia and harness innovation partnerships to grow UK-Russia technology links.  The support collaboration 2017 is the UK-Russia Year of Science and Education. The Year rolls out a broad programme of bilateral events and activities delivered by SIN Russia, the British Council, the Royal Society, and partners across Russia and the UK.
