Twice a year, the Association of Early Career Scientists (APECS) celebrates International Polar Week during the equinox, when day- and night-time are equal all around the world. During this week, they share a series of activities through APECS international and its national committees to raise awareness of the polar and alpine areas - their indigenous people, wildlife, facts, stories, scientists, and landscapes, as well as the risks they currently face, especially due to climatic changes.

This year, they are hosting a number of activities including:

  • Photo, Poetry, and Essay Competition
  • Indigenous Art
  • Polar Times - March Polar Week Special Episode
  • Webinar: When Indigenous meets western

We hope you have the chance to celebrate this special week by taking part in some of the festivities!
