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.
Polar Week programme:
- Photo Competition with Virtual Exhibition
- Polar Art Blog
- APECS Podcast - Polar Times
- Movie Night showing the first movie from MOSAIC Expedition
- Get-together Event
- US APECS Polar Film Festival
- Polar Indigenous collaboration poster

We encourage all of you to share your own stories, photos and experiences with us during September Polar Week using the hashtags: #PolarWeek, #ScientistsWhoSelfie, #PolarWeekPhoto, #PolarWeekArt and #PolarFunFact .
We encourage all APECS members and National Committees to organize their own events and activities. Please feel free to let us know about your planned activities so that we can help you to implement and share them on our webpage and social media channels.
