International Spaces as an annual event to build global awareness of
this important institution, celebrating this milestone of peace in our
civilization with hope and inspiration for future generations. The
Antarctic Treaty was adopted “with the interests of science and the
progress of all mankind” so that today there is a variety of activities
around Antarctica Day such as the Virtual ‘Peace’ Balloon Launch,
classroom activities, life events and much more (http://www.apecs.is/images/
