Antarctica offers up three unique perspectives as a flagship Global Project:-

A Rich Heritage of Scouting's Connection with the Golden Age of Polar Exploration

In the Winter of 2021/22 a select team of Scouts will be sailing on the Bark Europa Tall Ship from South America to Port Lockroy in Antarctica.
