The Cold is Getting Hot! Polar Symposium: from Arctic to Antarctic - 24th & 25th February 2022
The polar symposium will convene leading scientists to discuss how, how fast and in what ways changes in our planet’s polar regions are affecting Earth climate, living and social systems and how this concerns us all.
The event will inform management, policies and collective action in the poles and feed into processes at international and regional levels. It will serve as a landmark dialogue reaffirming the role of science in decision making and revisiting the critical role of the cryosphere in a changing climate.
The Symposium is being organised by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation with the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) as co-conveners, in collaboration with the Oceanographic Institute, Prince Albert I of Monaco Foundation and the UN Decade for Ocean Science for Sustainable development.
Recognizing their expertise and work on the subject, a number of key partners and experts will feed the talks, including the participation of early career scientists.
The Symposium is privileged as an in-person event and hosted at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and available on streaming.
Convened under the presidency of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, it will reassert the priority of the Foundation for polar regions and amplify the call for dialogue across sciences and policies.
The event website and link to the virtual stream will be available soon.
