uk polar network logoOur Spaces logoapecs logo web

Antarctica is an amazing place, filled with fascinating forms of marine life, mountains of ice, and vast polar deserts. It is also a place of peace and scientific Discovery because of the Antarctic Treaty which was ratified on December, 1st 1959. Continuing in this spirit of international cooperation, UK Polar Network, in conjunction with APECS and Our Spaces, once again invited educators and their students from around the world to express their own knowledge, curiosity and amazement about this incredible frozen continent in the form of Antarctica Flags and Books.

UK Polar Network, APECS and Our Spaces partnered again to offer the chance for students to see their flags displayed at research camps in Antarctica!
