It's International Polar Week from 20th to 26th of September 2020! Join us in putting the polar and alpine regions into the spotlight.

The Polar Week aims to celebrate the importance of polar and alpine regions and the cryosphere in general. It takes place twice a year for one week around the spring and autumnal equinox when daytime and night-time are equal all around the World!

During this Polar Week we will share a series of talks and activities through APECS international and NC committees to raise awareness on polar life, facts, stories, the role in the climate crisis and so forth. We enthusiastically encourage our early career researchers (ECR) to both join our activities and to create their own events within the framework of the Polar Week.
