Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We would like to introduce to you "Celebrating Antarctica," a book aimed at young audiences which introduces the Antarctica treaty using simple text, beautiful imagery, and illustrations from children themselves!

The book is available for free download at:

We are trying to make it available in as many languages as possible. There are versions in English, simplified Chinese, French, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal & Brazil), and Spanish available, and we are working on Arabic, Bulgarian, traditional Chinese, German, Italian, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian, and Vietnamese.

We encourage scientists and educators to use this as a tool to spread awareness of the Antarctic Treaty, polar science, and international cooperation using science as a common language.
