the Polar Week Project Group, the Art Project Group, the Social Media Coordinators and the APECS Office and to all other contributors and to all who celebrated the polar and alpine regions with us during the APECS INTERNATIONAL POLAR WEEK from 19-25 September 2021!

The main goal of this event is to engage the global polar studies community to share knowledge, experience, and fun from different perspectives. This time we continue this great tradition through diverse activities such as photo contests, interviews with polar artists, researchers, and educators, participation in virtual polar games, the APECS podcast, and many more all around the world, thanks to our National Committees. 

Looking forward to the next celebration in March 2022!
