We’re joining over 50 other TEDxOrganisers around the world to bring you a special Viewing Party for TEDxScottBase, our Facebook Event here.

  • DATE: Sunday 22 January 2017
  • TIME: 3:00pm - 7:00pm
  • LOCATION: WG404, Sir Paul Reeves Building, AUT City Campus

In 2017 New Zealand will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Scott Base. To mark the occasion, Antarctica New Zealand is hosting a first-of-its-kind event on ice. International voices in science, art, entrepreneurship and more will come together in the most remote location on Earth, and their ideas will be broadcast to the world. You’ll be able to join with other curious minds from around the globe for the occasion.

The broadcast of talks, which have been pre-recorded on location at Scott Base on 17th January and will feature 10 extraordinary speakers, including Dan Barry, Jeremy Moon, Claudia Batten and Jane Ussher. Geospatial scientist and TEDxAuckland 2016 speaker, Dr. Barbara Bollard-Breen will also join us in person, along with her team from AUT who’s research in Antarctica recently featured on National Geographic.


Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to celebrate one of the most scientifically significant research facilities on earth.

In typical TEDxAuckland fashion we will be encouraging people to head out afterwards for dinner and drinks somewhere close by to carry on mingling with like-minded souls.

Thanks to AUT for partnering with us to host this event.
