Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


An ad hoc group (of mostly Arctic scientists) is considering the desirability and feasibility of planning for an International Polar Year in 2032-2033, 25 years after the last IPY. This timing is much earlier than the past 50-year gap between IPYs. This acceleration in timing is, at least in part, being justified by the rapid change that the polar regions are experiencing today.

To assist with discussions about IPY 2032-2033, SCAR is asking for your opinion about community support for such an activity. While it might seem years away, the formulation of an IPY will take several years of planning to ensure wide participation and success.

We estimate that it will take about 10 minutes to complete the survey depending on the length of your replies.

Please use the link below to fill out the IPY 2032-2033 survey. We look forward to your input.

The survey will close on 15 April 2022, so please take this opportunity to tell us more.
