Project Description

ICARP, like the International Polar Year (IPY) and other polar initiatives, has continually expanded its reach over time. Polar Educators International (PEI) is an IPY legacy project - coming from their outreach and education efforts.

PEI proposes to hold its 6th International Conference and Workshop in 2025 in Boulder, Colorado, as part of ICARP IV. The importance of polar education and outreach has been recognised during the ICARP IV planning process, with the inclusion of one of the 7 Topics (Topic 6) “Preparing present and future generations through Education, Outreach, Communication, Capacity Building, and Networking”.

Through the mechanism of the 6th biennial polar educators Conference and Workshop, and its associated session themes, Polar Educators International will provide its educational expertise to connect Indigenous Arctic community members with interests in education, early career researchers with interests in education and science communication, formal and informal educators with interests in the polar regions, and the ICARP IV research community.
