The Swiss Polar Institute is committed to empowering an engaging dialogue between scientific research and local communities. Its various outreach channels focus on raising awareness about the importance of polar science in better understanding the links between local and global climate change.


Written by beneficiaries of SPI funding, these engaging narratives present their authors’ impressions and reflections on fieldwork.
