For everyone who has an interest in the coldest regions of our planet, a diverse and vibrant international community that includes students, researchers, teachers, artists, and members of Indigenous nations. 

The main goal of this event is to engage the global polar studies community to share knowledge, experience, and fun from different perspectives. 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. 

APECS International Polar Week September 2021 will be celebrated with a wide range of activities around the world:
