International Polar Week

The international Polar Week happens twice a year during the equinox in March and September. We celebrate together with APECS International and many other national committees and is open to everyone who is interested in the cold or high mountainous regions of our planet. During the Polar Week, there is always a variety of activities from in-person meetings via online webinars and panel discussion to social media activities.

Check out our previous Polar Week activities and join us for the next!
