The last two centuries of human activity in Antarctica has seen a rapid evolution from discovery to exploitation; heroic exploration and a geopolitical arms race for sovereignty and today through international scientific programmes and questions of global sustainability. Today, Antarctica is at the leading edge of our understanding of our planet and its future.
The UK Antarctic Heritage Trust is the UK’s foremost polar organisation concerned with the custodianship of Britain’s heritage in Antarctica and using that heritage to engage a global audience with this important and fascinating place on our planet.
Camilla Nichol, CEO UK Antarctica Heritage Trust
Camilla Nichol is the CEO of the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust with responsibility for the conservation of six historic bases on the Antarctic Peninsula, including Port Lockroy. In this session she will explore the past two hundred years of human activity in Antarctica – and the unique place Antarctica has always had on the global stage. She will also consider the importance and the future challenges for Antarctica through the lens of its heritage and how these extraordinary places might be used to help us all better understand, value, and protect Antarctica for a sustainable future.
