This year's topic is "Resilient food systems from a Baltic Sea Region perspective". The conference is free of charge for Arcada students studying at bachelor and master level.
Accepted students will spend two full days on the island of Gotland, located in the middle of the Baltic Sea. During these days, students will take part in lectures, workshops and discussions with experts from academia, civil society and local food producers. Participants will also get the opportunity to visit a productive organic farm as well as take part in a guided tour of the Medieval Hanseatic city of Visby, which is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
During our four days conference on the island of Gotland, the students will get a unique experience learning from regional experts and local food producers.
The BUP will cover all participant's costs of accommodation, food and travels from Stockholm to Visby and back.
