The Antarctic Treaty……presented in book form for young audiences, illustrated by schoolchildren from around the world! Brought to you by The Foundation for the Good Governance of International Spaces (Our Spaces).

A new educational initiative sharing youthful perspectives about the Antarctic Treaty in the form of ‘flags’ designed by children in 30 countries: Angola, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, England (United Kingdom), Finland, France, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, São Tomé and Principe, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland, Ukraine, United States, Uruguay, Vietnam, Wales (United Kingdom).

Unlike flags generally, those in this book reflect a universal language that communicates hope, cooperation and inspiration for the future of our civilization. The Antarctic Treaty shines as a rare beacon of international collaboration and peace in our world. To celebrate this milestone – ANTARCTICA DAY was established on December 1st – recognizing the day when the Antarctic Treaty was signed in 1959 forever in the common interests of humanity.
