Antarctica Day is celebrated internationally on 1 December, marking the day of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty in 1959. 60 years ago, Antarctica became a continent dedicated to peace and scientific international collaboration!
Like every year, APECS joins our partners Our Spaces - Foundation for the Good Governance of International Spaces, Polar Educators International (PEI) and others around the world to mark this important milestone with fun activities.
Here is how you can participate in this year’s Antarctica Day:
- Plan your own activity and add it to our Antarctica Day 2019 activities table
- Distribute the booklet “Celebrating Antarctica” to local schools and libraries. This colourful education resource is a free download, and it has been translated in many (many!) different languages.
