Correcting a great injustice – the present exclusion of Antarctica from World Heritage consideration. As things stand, Antarctica, the part of the world with arguably the most Outstanding Universal Values, cannot be added to the World Heritage List.
The forum will focus on why and how this monumental environmental injustice can be corrected. Speakers will outline the Outstanding Universal Values of Antarctica including what World Heritage Listing would contribute to international environmental conservation, how the World Heritage Convention can be amended to make listing possible and the leading role Australia can play in securing World Heritage Listing for Antarctica.
Hear about the present legal situation and how it can be corrected as well as lessons from the past. The forum is being held at the time of the 35th Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting in Hobart for the first time ever, and in the year which is the Fortieth Anniversary of the World Heritage Convention.
Come along and join the discussion on World Heritage Listing of Antarctica.
|Location:||Salamanca Arts Centre, Peacock Theatre, 77 Salamanca Place, Hobart|
|Time:||2:00pm to 6:00pm|
