The center’s achievements will help teachers of the Arctic zone introduce modern educational methods.

The Arctic Development Project Office (ADPO) will join the Far East and the Arctic Human Capital Development Agency (FEAHCDA). They are going to study the needs of the Russian Arctic in personnel. This time it will cover all nine Arctic regions.

According to the agency representative, it is necessary that the Federal Law on Education include measures to support northerners, to improve their situation. The main goal is to increase the chances of the indigenous minorities of the North to enter universities, this requires special quotas.

The head of the Arctic Development Project Office Alexander Stotsky urged teachers and educational organizations in the Arctic to apply for ADPO grants to introduce modern educational methods. The organization has successful experience in grant support for educational projects, in particular, these are environmental lessons in the Nenets Autonomous area and Murmansk. In addition, ADPO is ready to share the best practices of the White Bear environmental education center. The center operates in Norilsk and uses online tools (interactive sites, a mobile application, VR) to familiarize children with the nature and ecology of the Arctic.

“Now school education in the territory of the Russian Arctic does not meet the requirements of the time. Elementary digital inequality leads to the fact that the selection system for talented children is not working well in the Arctic. As a result, they have deliberately lower chances than the rest when entering universities. In the Arctic, it is necessary to create an integrated system for the selection and support of talented children, especially the indigenous peoples of the North representatives”, said Alexander Vorotnikov, coordinator of the ADPO expert council.
