The Pure Antarctic Foundation Inc. (PAF) a not-for-profit incorporated association established to oversee the scientific and educational components of Pure Antarctic events.
Pure Antarctic events aims to engage the global community in science, particularly students. Education is central to our events and PAF will aim to involve key educational institutions where possible, at all levels, and tap into national curricula.
The scientific component of events will be based on peer-reviewed published science. Scientific content advice will be sought widely from the global scientific community, including the Australian Academy of Science, other national Academies of Science, the international Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and individual scientists and science teams. Events will also be supported by scientific expert groups.
We will aim to make available either the primary source of science content that is the backbone of Pure Antarctic events (or links to the source) and also provide layperson guides to this science, as scientific papers can be a bit opaque to those who have not been exposed to the jargon. Hence we will provide an ongoing outlet of information for teachers, students and everyone with a passion for Antarctica and the rest of the planet.
We seek additional corporate, philanthropic and foundational support to partner with our unique vision.
The Pure Antarctic Foundation is proud to be currently supported by Nanu Australia. .
We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the First Nations Peoples of Australia and acknowledge and pay our respects to the past, present and emerging Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live and work and recognise their connection to country, community and culture.
