The Legacy and Future of the International Polar Year
Hanne Nielsen
Oral Presentation
Davos, Switzerland
19-23 June 2018
Polar 2018 will be 10 years after the International Polar Year (IPY) and the last SCAR/IASC joint conference. This occasion is therefore a great time to both take a look back at the outcomes of the IPY in terms of Observing Systems, Data Access, Scientific Cooperation, the next generation of scientists and Education and Outreach, as well as to look to the future developments in those areas.

This symposium will involve many partners including WMO (World Climate and World Weather Research Programmes), ICSU (SCAR, IASC etc.) APECS, Polar Educators International and others. The symposium format will be a mixture of short presentations and a panel discussion. Speakers/panelists will be asked to both review what was achieved during IPY and the last 10 years and what still needs to be done in the future.
