A workhop on 'Exploring linkages between environmental management and value systems – the case of Antarctica', is being hosted at the University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand on December 5th, 2011. The workshop focuses on the connection between the values attributed to a certain environment and its management. Using the case of Antarctica, a continent without an indigenous human population, we will discuss how the human impressions of and engagement with Antarctica inform environmental management decisions. These impressions and opinions might influence decisions that, collectively, can affect entire global systems, primarily through their impacts on climate, natural resources, and international policy.
