Stockholm Summer Polar Pub 12 June 2018

Welcome to our last Polar Pub in Stockholm before summer! While we have focused on the northern Polar region at our previous Polar Pub, we now move southwards: Our guest speakers Robin Blomdin and Hanne Nielsen will talk about their work on Antaractica.

 

Polar week activities!

Regional Polar Pubs and online activities during Polar week 19 – 25 March.

APECS Sweden is holding gatherings across the country during Polar week. Events are being planned for Göteborg, Stockholm, Umeå, and Uppsala. Each event starts with fika and talks followed by a lunch or dinner at a nearby restaurant or pub. Stay tuned for more details from each regional centre or contact your local representative.

There are also many opportunities to engage online and internationally: check out APECS International page for ideas
