In October, 2009 Yukon College in Canada's Yukon Territory will host the ACUNS-APECS International Student Conference, Communities of Change - Building an IPY Legacy.

The conference will bring together 250 students, postdoctoral scholars, young faculty, and others from around the world to discuss changes in the polar world. This event is one of many celebrating the International Polar Year, as it draws to an end.

The conference will focus on changes in polar communities, including: flora, fauna and marine communities, human communities, and research communities.
