Top Hotel Prague, from 1 until 11 July, 2019.

 

Welcome to Prague!

NB:  Joint SCAR/CEP Workshop on Further Developing the Antarctic Protected Area System. The workshop will be held at the Masarykova kolej (https://www.masarykovakolej.cz/en/congresses) in Prague, the Czech Republic, on Thursday 27 June 2019 and Friday 28 June 2019.

The result of one of the most successful exercises of multilateral diplomacy in recent history, since its inception, the Antarctic Treaty has been an instrument closely tied to international cooperation as the central pillar for the consolidation of peace and the development of scientific research throughout the continent.

Over the years, as other instruments of the System were developed, the Treaty proved paramount in the evolution of the necessary mechanisms for the protection of Antarctica´s unique and invaluable environment. Thus, the present Meeting in Prague will offer the Parties a new opportunity to continue to strengthen these commitments.

We hope the intense work during the two weeks in Prague will be productive and worthwhile for all Delegates, yet, at the same time, allow you to enjoy the benefits of beautiful Prague.

 Through this website Delegates will be able to access useful information about the Czech Republic, Prague, the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting, Antarctica, the Antarctic Treaty System, the Czech Republic Antarctic Programme and many other topics that may be of interest.

 

 Welcome to Prague!
