Get Involved with IPY:

Are you fascinated by the polar regions? Do you have a story to tell? Are you an artist? A tourist? A student? Do you live in the North? Or the South?

During IPY, several new polar initiatives were developed throughout by our IPY partners. There were many activities that took place across the globe and the majority of these have been documented in the APECS Polar Outreach Catalogue which can be accessed from the APECS website. Please also take some time to search the IPY databases for further information on activities that took place during the IPY 2007-08.

Many networks were also developed during the IPY for specific polar enthusiasts and communities, for example the IPY Discussion Groups and the IPY Global Community as well as the Early Career Polar Scientists Network which continues to grow. Visit the website to look for jobs, ask about field field opportunities, meet others interested in the polar regions. For more information, email .
