The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) announces the
third webinar in the Fall 2012 Career Development Webinar Series,
scheduled for Tuesday, 16 October 2012 at 5:00 p.m. GMT. For information
about alternate time zones, please see:

This week's webinar is entitled "Addressing Sustainability in Polar
Research." It will be presented by Sandra Vanhove, Head of Education at
the International Polar Foundation; and Olivia Rempel, a graduate
student at Dalhousie University. This webinar will investigate issues
related to sustainability in polar research, and will help participants
think about ways to make their polar research more sustainable in the
face of climate change and rising fuel prices. Carbon Neutral Antarctica
(CNA) is an organization that aims to promote the use of renewable
energy on the seventh continent, and the International Polar Foundation
(IPF) was set up in 2002 with the vision of bridging the gap between
science and society through education, action, and demonstration.
Looking at present examples, including the carbon neutral Princess
Elisabeth research station, both organizations will present and
facilitate discussion to help early career scientists learn about
current sustainability efforts and think about future directions as they
plan their polar research work and careers.
