Antarctica Day was initiated by the Foundation for the Good Governance of 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/stories/events/antarctica_day/ANTARCTICA_DAY_2011.pdf).

We are looking forward to meeting you at the webinar.
