Why APECS? Why now?

Changing sea ice, melting glaciers, rising sea level, coastal erosion, extreme weather events, impacts of food and drinking water security, increased development of natural and energy resources, and changes in international shipping and trade routes – these are just some of the noticeable examples of how changes influencing the Arctic, the Antarctic, and the cryosphere impact the lives of every single person on Earth! As the climate changes, the need to predict impacts and find solutions is more important than ever before.

What can APECS do for you?

Whether an individual, university, company, or foundation, we seek contributions from those who share our interest in better understanding the polar regions, their importance in a global contest, and supporting the career development of young researchers. Whether a 50 EURO individual pledge for three years or a 50,000 EURO corporate contribution, every donation helps.

By supporting APECS, you can reach out to a huge number of future leaders and employees. We recognize all sponsors are unique, so we look forward to working with you to recognize your contribution. Some ways we can do that include:
