International Model Barents/Euro-Arctic Council is a role-playing game, aimed at simulating different forms of the Barents/Euro-Arctic Council work. Since the Model Barents/Euro-Arctic Council has a well-balanced representation structure and also conducts research in all essential fields of studies, its simulation makes it possible for very different groups of active young professionals, activists, volunteers as well as young representatives of the youth to get relevant and highly rewarding experience.

The central objective of IMBEAC-2022 is to assemble the talented and engaged youth, create a platform for their exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience and give an additional drive to their inter-regional and international cooperation.
