One Planet - Polar Summit - International summit dedicated to glaciers and poles

The first international summit dedicated to glaciers and poles. A scientific forum bringing together the international scientific community will be held on November 8 and 9 at the National Museum of Natural History of Paris. The Arctic and Antarctic are today major strategic areas on which the planet's equilibrium largely depends. Like the oceans to which they are intrinsically linked, the North and South Poles play a central role in climate regulation and the preservation of biodiversity. Actors and first victims of climate change, they are also sounding the alarm.

For the first time, researchers and scientists from over forty glacial and polar nations will be meeting in Paris to share their findings and observations with IPCC and IPBES experts, as well as with the heads of international institutions, NGOs, representatives of indigenous peoples and local communities, the private sector involved in these regions, and the political leaders of countries present in the Arctic, Antarctic and glacial worlds.

The summit will also involve the remote participation of researchers from the various scientific stations at the poles and glaciers, international polar operators and great figures in polar and glacial exploration.
