Ecological and educational contest “Clean Arctic – the territory of education”
We invite MAI residents to participate in the ecological and educational contest "Clean Arctic – the Territory of Education", which is held within the framework of the International Environmental Project "Clean Arctic", and to contribute to the preservation of the Arctic land.
The aim of the competition is to popularize knowledge about the Arctic and the formation of groups of active volunteers to participate in the expeditions of the third season (2023).
The competition is held in the following categories:
- Arctic Ambassador – Connoisseur of Creativity;
- Arctic Ambassador – Keeper of Knowledge;

The main aim of the “Clean Arctic” project is to create a program to clean up the Arctic territories from waste generated as a result of their intensive development during the Soviet period. 3,000 volunteers have taken part in the project. They have cleared 110 hectares of Arctic land – more than 5,000 tons of waste have already been removed from it.
