Join us in celebrating International Polar Week from 26 to 30 September! Click here for more info, the programme and further activities organised by APECS National Committees. 

APECS International Polar Week is a traditional APECS event held twice a year during the equinoxes (March and September), that is, the dates when the Sun is exactly above the Equator, making day and night of approximately equal length in the northern and southern hemispheres.

This is a celebration of the polar and alpine regions with the aim of increasing interest and knowledge about these regions. The next international polar week will take place between 26-30 September 2022 and on these dates, we want to engage students, researchers, educators and everyone interested in the polar regions to share experiences and curiosities at a series of events around the world.

Are you planning your own event? Submit it to the Polar Week Events Around the World submission form and we will share it on the APECS webpage.

Happy Polar Week!
