The International Polar Year (IPY) is a large scientific program focused on the Arctic and the Antarctic from March 2007 to March 2009.

Deutsche Welle is cooperating with Germany’s renowned Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar Research and a network of radio stations in the USA, the UK, Australia and New Zealand to report on the polar research taking place during the IPY, with a special focus on climate change.
