Two online community workshops are being organised SCAR's Scientific Research Programme Ant-ICON (Integrated Science to Inform Antarctic and Southern Ocean Conservation). The workshops will be facilitated by Ant-ICON Research Theme 3, which is focused on the human dimensions of Antarctic conservation and management. Together, we will explore the use, conceptualisation and human experience of a selection of Antarctic regions: the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Ross Sea, South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula.
Details for each of the two workshops and the names of our esteemed speakers are below. Each speaker will give short presentations to stimulate the discussion. We are very grateful for their participation!
