This winter the city of Groningen will be a polar city. During a lively festival you can visit several exhibitions, attend public lectures, meet polar scientists, experience the polar night, win a trip to Spitsbergen and see lots of polar movies!
The festival is organized to bring the Polar Regions, and all it’s aspects, closer to the public. We also celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Arctic Centre at the University of Groningen. Together with colleague polar scientists and organizations such as WWF, Blikveld and KNNV publisher we organize the ‘Poolnacht van Groningen’ [Polar Night of Groningen] from November 15th 2010 until January 15th 2011.
The Polar Night of Groningen is our way to inform a general public about the Polar Regions. Therefore most activities will be in Dutch, but underneath you will find an overview of activities that are of interest to non-Dutch speakers:
