Polar Resource Book The Polar Resource Book - Polar Science and Global Climate: An International Resource for Education and Outreach - was published in 2010 and created to ensure efforts catalyzed by the International Polar Year (IPY) will continue to inspire educators, students, and emerging polar researchers into the next generation of young, international, polar researchers with a shared commitment to outreach and education.

Polar Science and Global Climate: An International Resource for Education and Outreach comprises background information on recent polar research and the history of IPY. It addresses climate change related issues from the perspective of the indigenous population in the Arctic. It provides a selection of teaching resources on six polar themes (atmosphere, ice, ocean, land, people and space) and showcases large- and small-scale education and outreach projects successfully carried out during the IPY.

The project has received support from a wide range of actors who are part of the IPY community, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Science Council (ICSU), as well as the Canadian IPY Secretariat and IPY Program, the National Academies of the United States, the United National Environment Program (UNEP) and the organising committee for the flagship IPY Oslo Science Conference (OSC), and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS).
