The international polar community celebrates Antarctica Day on the 1st of December to commemorate the 61st anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty. During this year, the APECS Antarctica Day Project Group (PG) has planned a series of activities for all our members and national committees to raise awareness of the importance of Antarctica in a fast changing world.
We enthusiastically encourage our early career researchers (ECR) to both join our activities and to communicate with us if you are planning something special to celebrate Antarctica with your community. We want to promote your activities, too! Thanks to the wide collaborations between countries, we could expand and enrich our events and celebrate the spirit of international peace and scientific cooperation that signified the signing of the Antarctic Treaty in 1959.
