The Polar Outreach Catalogue is here!

Over the last several months the International Polar Year (IPY) Education, Outreach and Communication (EOC) Assessment Committee has been working to collect information on Education, Outreach and Communication projects that occurred during the 2007-2009 International Polar Year.

We have now collected survey responses from more than 200 IPY EOC activities and have information on more than 500 education and outreach programs. Thank you to all those who have taken the time filled out our survey, your efforts are greatly appreciated and we have included all the entries into our current catalogue of IPY EOC efforts, which you can take a look at here.

You can view the serachable catalogue herehere, under the IPY Outreach Assessment project on the APECS site. While we are in the review stage the catalogue is only showing a few information feilds.  When the inventorying process is complete the catalogue will be available in full detail.

If you worked on an EOC during the latest IPY and it is not in our records we still do not have any record of it. We are closing the survey on March 31st so this is your last opportunity to have your IPY EOC efforts included in our assessment. Please take a look through our catalogue!  All the records submitted to date are included, so if you don't see, we don't have a record of it!  And if you know of any more IPY EOC activities please take the time to enter them in order to have them recorded.
