This unit will explore the need for, and promotion of, wise, informed and sustainable Antarctic resource utilisation through integration of informed governance and decision making with scientifically based environmental conservation. It will focus on promoting a synergetic and iterative approach to Antarctic conservation and governance by enhancing communication and understanding in the fields of Antarctic science, law, policy and sustainable management. Emphasis is given to scientifically based Antarctic conservation, protection and management at both national and international level. The approach is globally unique and aims to develop academic flexibility, independence and freedom.
Face to face seminars and tutorials will form the basis for teaching, demonstration and practical applications.
