Access Call and Management
When possible, complement TA Calls in INTERACT.
INPA’s Ambassador activities
Members will represent INTERACT in different organizations and at different meetings and conventions. We plan to attend five meetings during the year.
Increasing public Awareness
Make politicians, local residents and Indigenous People and other influential persons aware of climate change and environmental issues in the Arctic, sub-Arctic, boreal and alpine regions and the importance of long-term sustained infrastructure such as INPA. We plan to produce flyers in several Arctic languages (including indigenous languages).
Translation of INTERACT publication
To maximize the outreach and the availability of educational resources, INPA will translate existing priority INTERACT products into various languages as well as contributing to new publications. We plan to translate one book into xx languages.
Proposal writing for specific Call
When the possibility to apply for funding from different national and international Agencies arises, INPA will allocate effort for the activities. Full transparency will be applied regarding selection process among the different member stations by using specific guidelines developed and approved by the General Assembly. We will employ a part time secretary to administrate this process.
Mission driven activities
These activities are those proposed and agreed in INTERACT Non-Profit Association’s Statutes and recorded in the internal documents.
This project is the co-creation and implementation of a coherent, integrated Arctic observing system: the ‘Pan-Arctic Observing System of Systems - pan-AOSS’. It aims to overcome known flaws in the present observing system by refining its operability, improving, and extending pan-Arctic scientific and community-based monitoring. INPA will contribute with environmental data from 10 research stations. We will buy equipment where it is needed and a part time administrator will be employed to run the review which will be done.
Networking of INPA will be done through online and physical meetings (e.g. Board meetings, General Assemblies), the INPA website, and through social media.
Fundraising activities will include developing a landing page on the website and direct mailing to “Friends of INTERACT”, and a fundraising event.
Association management and accounting
An accountant is hired to assure correct accounting.
Day-to-day Coordination activities
These activities ensure the efficient and continuous operation of performing the agreed activities of INPA.
