Save the Date - "The Cold is Getting Hot!" Polar Symposium 2024


The Cold is Getting Hot!

Polar Symposium : From the Arctic to the Antarctic

Hybrid Event: February 22nd and 23rd, 2024

The polar symposium will convene, for the second time, 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 of Monaco - the Prince Albert I Foundation, the Scientific Center of Monaco, the European Polar Board, and the World Economic Forum.

Recognising 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.
