A SLED DOG LIFE!

Polar dogs look more like wolves than any other breed – but are they really closer to their ancestors? Why are they not bothered by cold? How can they run, run, run for miles on end and how did they help humans to settle in the Arctic? Is climate change a threat for sled dogs? Join us to find the answers!

This webinar is accompanied by a small educational tool-kit about 'Fennoscandia - and its culture', for those who are not familiar with the culture of Fennoscandia, the most northern region of Europe. We advise that your students work with the tool-kit prior to the webinar. It is also available in Norwegian. The tool-kit is free to be used by anyone who is interested, but please REGISTER with us so that we can keep you updated about changes and new tool-kits.
