  1. Plan, organize and execute a focused panel/seminar on the theme, in close consultation with Professor Akiho Shibata, one of the co-leads of the Action Group;
  2. Convene a live seminar, preferably in-person (with a possibility of some presenters participating online) during the SC-HASS Conference in Kobe, Japan; and
  3. Prepare, collect and edit papers and reports from the seminar for potential publication in The Polar Journal or another high-impact journal.
