Hits : 333

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, and International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) in collaboration with the Oceaographic Institute present 'The Cold is Getting Hot!' 

Environmental change in the Arctic and Antarctic is accelerating, affecting both local biophysical and living things and affecting the broader climate, human and ecological systems far beyond the poles. 

This scientific symposium will convene leading scientists to discuss how, how fast, and in what ways changes in our planet's polar regions are affecting Earth's climate, living and social systems, and how this affects us all. 

This event will inform management, policy and collective action in the poles and feed into processes at international and regional levels. 

The event will be held in person at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and available to watch online through a live stream.

The timings for the event will be:

  • 24th February – 9:00 to 16:30 CET
  • 25th February – 8.30 to 16:00 CET


  • Session 1: Understanding changes in the poles
  • Session 2: Contribution of polar changes to the global climate
  • Session 3: Effects of polar changes upon global human societies and economies
  • Session 4: Management responses in the face of uncertainties
