In partnership with Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers, students and youth from northern and southern Canada, we are preparing short films showcasing different journeys from members of our community. If you would like to share your journey, please click here, where you’ll be invited to record 30 second videos to respond to some questions. You can respond to one, a few or all questions. Voice-only submissions are also welcome! If you wish to contribute anonymously, written responses are also welcome, and will be read and recorded by Indigenous youth.

In our Polar and Alpine Community News we feature news from the many partners that APECS is working with, as well as other news from a variety of sources related to research in the Arctic, Antarctic and Alpine regions as well as the wider Cryosphere. Many thanks to APECS members and the wider Polar research community for contributing to this shared resources!
We keep only the news of the last 3 months on this page. Older news can be accessed in our Polar and Alpine News Archive.
In the 2020 issue of UArctic's annual Shared Voices magazine they feature examples of climate action from their network: broader organizational efforts, personal and individual actions, and concrete examples from the grassroots level. How does climate action look like in politics and leadership? What are current national priorities in the Arctic? What can we learn from COVID-19 to improve online education?
The EU-H2020 funded INTERACT (International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic) opens a call for research groups to apply for Trans-National Access and Remote Access to 52 (TA) and 33 (RA) research stations. The current call for Trans-national and Remote Access applications is open until 15th October 2020, and it is for access taking place between April 2021 and March 2022. Regarding COVID-19 and the ongoing call: we proceed with the call in a regular manner, but reserve the possibility to modify the call, postpone the granted accesses or negotiate shift from physical access to remote access if the situation and safety regulations so require. You can find the TA/RA Call information, descriptions of stations and their facilities, and registration to the INTERACCESS on-line application system from the INTERACT website.
With just ten years to go to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN’s 2030 Agenda, science funders from around the world have asked the International Science Council (ISC) to convene the insights and ideas of the broader global scientific community on the critical priorities for science that will support and enable societies to accomplish the goals by 2030. ISC wants to hear from scientists in all fields and all disciplines, including the natural, social and human sciences.

Every year around December, IASC publishes our Arctic science calendar.
For graphics and photographs we depend solely on what the IASC community sends us. We are looking for new photographs for the publication of the 2020 Calendar, and other IASC publications such as the website, brochures, social media, and Bulletin. We welcome images depicting all areas of Arctic science: scientists in the field, animals, landscapes, everyday life in the Arctic, and more!Read more ...
