The International Polar Foundation is dedicated to advancing knowledge and fostering informed action on climate change, sustainability, and the significance of polar scientific research. Founded in 2002 by Belgian polar explorer Alain Hubert, Prof. Hugo Decleir, and Prof. André Berger, the foundation serves as a vital link between science and society. Recognized by Belgian Royal Statute as a foundation for the public good, it aims to deepen our understanding of the planet's interconnections, its fragility, and the impact of human actions on the environment, with a particular focus on the Polar Regions. To fulfill its mission, the International Polar Foundation has undertaken various influential projects. Notably, it established the innovative, zero-emission Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station powered by wind and solar energy. The foundation also supports scientists working in Antarctica, offers fellowship awards for Antarctic researchers, organizes an annual symposium on Arctic issues, and develops science and education websites, classroom activities, and resources. Committed to education and outreach, the foundation equips younger generations with the knowledge and skills to tackle the climate challenge. Through innovation and sustainability, the International Polar Foundation showcases the availability of technologies to combat climate change. With partnerships and support from corporations and private donations, the foundation continues to make remarkable strides in polar sciences.
