International Polar Week is an opportunity for APECS and its members to promote Polar science. APECS uses this opportunity to plan and develop Polar science related activities alongside teachers, educators and those interested in polar education for the equinoxes of each year. The equinoxes in March and September are the only time when everywhere on earth the day length is 12 hours, a perfect opportunity to celebrate the poles on a global scale!
More information on International Polar Week Fall 2016 and how to participate can be found on the Polar Week page.
This year we have a number of events organised for you to take part in!
- Figure competition (deadline 18th September)
- #PolarFilmFest (organized by US APECS)
- Webinar on 'Understanding the ecological power of communication'
- Webinar on 'Social Media for Marine and Antarctic Scientists'
We look forward to celebrating Polar Week with you!
