flyer september2018 KopieAPECS International Polar Week September 2018 will be from September 17-23! Polar Week is a series of events happening globally, with the goal of promoting the science taking place in polar latitudes.

This September, our theme will be #PolarNumbers with a focus on showcasing quantitative aspects of your own polar education and research interests. Everyone deals with numbers - whether it be, for example, the number of penguins in your study, the number of days you spent in the field this summer, the year of a historical event, a statistically significant data point in your recent research, or just your favourite polar-related number - we want to know!’ We encourage you to share your #PolarNumbers through a series of fun and professional activities online, and don’t forget to seek out local events through your National Committee.

We encourage APECS members and National Committees to organize their own activities and to submit details via the Polar Week website!
