Antarctica Day

Inaugurated in 2010 to celebrate the signing of the Antarctic treaty on December 1st 1959 for "the interests of science and progress of all mankind". This celebration was initiated by the Foundation for Good Governance of International Spaces as an annual event to build global awareness of this effort for peace and hope for the future.
