Summary

The future of our frozen continent.

The land covering Earth’s southern pole is a place of extremes – fierce weather, raw beauty and essential science. Like the canary in the coal mine, our Southern Ocean neighbour has also become a vital prognostic indicator of our warming planet.

Our panel will reflect on the fascinating history of Antarctica which is, governed by a unique global treaty. Exploring the weather, wildlife and the utmost importance of ice, this team of experts will reinforce why continued and collaborative Antarctic research is so important, now more than ever.
