Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


polar week logo 0APES International Polar Weeks coincide with the equinox, the times a year when everyone on the planet gets 12 hours of sunlight. We wanted to celebrate on a global scale by focusing on the science being conducted in the Arctic and Antarctic. Inspired by the many great things that came out of the International Polar Year celebrations, we hope that the bi-annual Polar Week celebration will link people in polar science and polar education.

APECS organized an International Polar Week in 2014:

  • 20 - 28 September 2014
