Belgium is hosting the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting, the young researchers of the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) Belgium feel that it is time to get public attention for the poles! We think that this is an  excellent opportunity for families, kids, students and teachers to learn more about the polar regions.
In particular, it is a chance to gain more knowledge about their conservation or the importance of current research and global climate change!
Posters, photo exhibitions, games and very 'cool' experiments will provide unique insights into the goals, methods and experiences of the polar research of numerous Belgian research facilities and organizations. Documentaries will be shown and lectures will be given by a large variety of speakers with experience in the field of polar research or the polar regions. Everything will be in English, French and Dutch and will suit various age groups.
