APECS International Polar Week is a traditional APECS event held twice a year during the equinoxes (March and September), that is, the dates when the Sun is exactly above the Equator, making day and night of approximately equal length in the northern and southern hemispheres. This is a celebration of the polar and alpine regions with the aim of increasing interest and knowledge about these regions.

The next international polar week will take place between 27 March - 2 April 2023 and on these dates, we want to engage students, researchers, educators and everyone interested in the polar regions to share experiences and curiosities at a series of events around the world.

We are planning to cover several topics during the week including the Arctic, Antarctica and Alpine regions, the importance of polar regions for climate change, polar art and polar engineering.
