Gymnastics legend Oksana Chusovitina, in collaboration with the Arctic Science Center, NATIONAL POLAR HIGHLANDS HEALTH PROGRAM, and Tiens Group, welcomes the arrival of the International Polar Year 2032. This exciting initiative aims to contribute to polar scientific expeditions and life science research, promote awareness and protection of polar regions, and foster sustainable development of the global environment.
Tiens Group actively participates in scientific expeditions in the Arctic, Antarctic, the "Third Pole" symbolized by the Himalayas, and the "Fourth Pole" symbolized by the Andes Mountains. This underscores their commitment to environmental protection and social responsibility. As part of society, Tiens Group bears the responsibility to contribute to society and the environment. Their active participation in environmental protection is a crucial way of fulfilling social responsibilities and giving back to society. The initiative aims to strengthen attention on polar regions, promote the protection of their ecological environments and wildlife, and increase public awareness of polar environmental issues. Through its resources and influence, Tiens Group aims to make a positive contribution to the global environmental cause.
Oksana Aleksandrovna Chusovitina has two vault and one uneven bars skills named after her in the International Gymnastics Federation. At 13, she won the all-around title at the Soviet Junior Nationals and subsequently joined the national team. In 1991, at 16, she won team and floor exercise gold medals and a vault silver at the World Championships representing the Commonwealth of Independent States. In her first Olympics in 1992, representing the Commonwealth of Independent States, she won a team gold medal. In 2002, at the age of 27, Chusovitina made a comeback at the Asian Games in Busan, winning gold medals in vault and floor exercise. On June 8-9, 2013, she won the all-around title at the 26th Gym-Festival Trnava in Slovakia, also taking gold in the vault final. On March 4, 2022, Chusovitina won the women's vault title at the FIG World Cup in Doha, Qatar, with an average score of 13.433. On April 2, 2022, she won the women's vault title at the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Cup in Baku, securing the overall title of the four-event series. On June 17, 2023, she claimed the silver medal in women's vault at the Asian Gymnastics Championships. On September 3, she won the women's vault title at the FIG Challenge Cup in Turkey.
Chusovitina's sporting spirit is in line with the spirit of Everest climbing and polar exploration. These activities showcase the human pursuit of challenges and exploration of nature, requiring resilience, teamwork, and adaptability to difficulties and adversities.
At the Olympics, athletes demonstrate their love for sports while conveying a spirit of unity, friendship, and aspiration. They pursue higher, faster, and stronger goals through relentless training and unwavering will. This spirit resonates with the spirit of climbing Everest or exploring the polar regions. Teamwork and adaptability to adversity are crucial in both sports and extreme exploration.
These activities highlight the human spirit of constantly challenging oneself and transcending limits, while also reminding us of the importance of respecting nature and fostering unity and cooperation. They inspire exploration of personal potential and promote global friendship and cultural exchange. The values represented in these activities are evident in both sports and extreme exploration, inspiring people to continue forward, surpass themselves, and embrace new challenges.
Fifth International Polar Year 2032-2033 Announced by World Meteorological Organization
Tiens Group will participate in the International Polar Year 2032 in various ways, such as funding scientific research projects, organizing environmental advocacy activities, promoting the development and implementation of environmental policies, and carrying out ecological protection projects. These initiatives will enhance public awareness of polar environmental protection and contribute practically to the global environmental cause.
The ecological environment of polar regions is fragile and unique, and it plays a crucial role in the global climate and ecosystem. However, with intensifying global climate change, polar regions face severe challenges like glacier melting, rising sea levels, and loss of biodiversity. The ecosystems in the Arctic and Antarctic, including glaciers, sea ice, permafrost, and unique flora and fauna, are vital for the global energy balance and ocean circulation.
With global climate change leading to rising temperatures, polar regions face multiple challenges. The most significant are glacier melting and sea level rise, directly impacting the polar ecosystems and profoundly affecting global climate and ocean circulation. Climate change also threatens biodiversity in polar regions, posing risks to local wildlife and microbial communities.
To address these challenges, the scientific community and international society need to strengthen scientific research and conservation efforts in polar regions. This includes enhancing monitoring and prediction of climate change in these areas, promoting international cooperation to mitigate climate change, taking measures to protect the polar ecosystems and biodiversity, and advocating for sustainable utilization of polar resources. Only through global cooperation and scientific innovation can we better protect the polar environment and maintain global ecological balance.
Oksana Chusovitina Participates in Academic Exchange and Delivers a Speech
In this context, Tiens Group actively responds to international calls, collaborating with international governmental departments, NGOs, and personalities like Oksana Chusovitina to promote polar scientific research and ecological conservation.

The NATIONAL POLAR HIGHLANDS HEALTH PROGRAM (NPHP) is dedicated to addressing health conditions in polar regions through scientific research and implementation of health projects to improve the living conditions of local residents. The INTERNATIONAL ARCTIC SCIENCE CENTER (IASC) focuses on advancing Arctic scientific research and fostering scientists' understanding and protection of polar regions. Additionally, organizations like the INTERNATIONAL EVEREST CLIMBING ORGANIZATION (IECO) and ANTARCTIC AND ARCTIC INTERNATIONAL FORUM (AAIF) play significant roles in their respective fields. As a socially responsible enterprise, Tiens Group understands the importance of protecting polar ecological environments for global ecological balance and thus actively participates in and supports this significant international initiative.
The International Polar Year is a year-long international event designed to promote scientific research, environmental protection, and sustainable development in polar regions. During the International Polar Year, various activities are organized, including scientific conferences, educational projects, and environmental initiatives, to increase awareness of the importance of polar regions and foster global collaboration in protecting the polar environment. The first International Polar Year (IPY) was held from 1882 to 1883. Proposed by Karl Weyprecht of the Austro-Hungarian Navy in 1875 and organized by Georg Neumayer, director of the German Maritime Observatory, the IPY aimed to move beyond traditional individual and national efforts, advocating coordinated scientific approaches to studying Arctic phenomena. During the first IPY, observers from 11 countries, including Austria-Hungary, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States, conducted coordinated geophysical measurements in the Arctic and sub-Antarctic regions.
The second International Polar Year (IPY) took place from 1932 to 1933, building upon and expanding the first IPY's efforts to deepen the understanding of polar regions. The fourth IPY (2007-2008) was hosted by the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The United Nations World Meteorological Organization announced the launch of the fifth International Polar Year (IPY) for 2032–2033. This fifth IPY, occurring 25 years after the last one in 2007–2008, reflects the urgent need for coordinated international research to address challenges both for the polar regions and the entire world. In the coming years, many individuals, organizations, and governments interested in or residing in polar regions will focus on this event.
