Description

Quickly introduce the controversy around industrial exploitation in Antarctica, with this lesson-starting classroom resource on environmental change and sustainable development, designed for Key Stage 3/4 geography students.

The video explains the 1961 Antarctica Treaty, the main areas the agreement covered and the potential environmental costs of mining the area for natural gas and oil.

Further discussion is encouraged at the end with a question for secondary pupils to debate.
