Reimagining Antarctic Gateway Cities

Date: July 5, 2017
Time: 6-7:30pm


Aurora Lecture Theatre, IMAS Waterfront Building, Hobart
20 Castray Esplanade, Battery Point TAS 7004


Hobart, Christchurch, Ushuaia, Punta Arenas and Cape Town may seem geographically remote from one another, but all five are linked because of their status as Antarctic Gateway Cities. What does this identity mean? How has it developed? And how could Antarctic Cities better collaborate?

An international panel of experts will explore what being an “Antarctic City” means within various national contexts, what benefits such status provides, and how connections with the far south could develop in the future. The panel will be followed by drinks, nibbles, and discussion.
