International Polar Week - What Happens at the Poles Affects Us All

Although most of us will never encounter sea ice or permafrost, see mountain glaciers, or meet a free-living penguin, we can recognise the impacts of polar changes on our global systems, on our weather and climate, and on our neighbours in many parts of the world. Polar Week What Happens at the Poles Affects Us All is an opportunity to explore the many changes in the polar regions and how they affect us around the world.

Visit the Polar Week website for more information on what’s happening around the world.
