Model Arctic Council

OMAC is the only online secondary-school Model Arctic Council in the world today. Students play the roles of delegates from Arctic states and, unusually in model diplomacy, indigenous peoples. Their challenge is to negotiate consensus on some of the most pressing questions facing not only the Arctic and its communities, but by extension our world as a whole.

Dr Anthony Speca speaks, writes, teaches and advises about Arctic issues through his consultancy, Polar Aspect.  His Model Arctic Council (MAC) experiential learning programmes for schools and universities raise awareness of the Arctic amongst youth by inviting them to play the roles of Arctic diplomats trying to reach consensus on difficult issues facing the region and its peoples.  He combines this innovative educational work with appointments to Norwich School in the UK, and Trent University in Canada.
