Case Study: 13th SCAR (International Council for Science –

World first – SCAR’s focus on impactful science looked at Antarctica and the Southern Ocean in global systems, recognising and reflecting the value of Māori mātauranga (knowledge).

For the first time, a half-day was dedicated to showcasing Māori exploration and research in the Deep South, including the official launch of the first indigenous-led Antarctic research programme in the world. The introduction by local leaders and experts created a deep impression with the international audience, creating lasting memories for all delegates.
