Future of the work and workforces in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean

On Antarctica Day 2022 the one-day Future of Work and Workforces in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean conference held in Hobart explored potential futures for the science, research, engineering, tourism, policy and artistic work conducted in, or related to, the Antarctic and Southern Ocean, and the workforces that do that work. Developed collaboratively by the CAST People program (program 2) and the University of Tasmania’s Future Polar Workforce initiative, the conference generated new insights and ‘future thinking’ from presentations by CAST members, academics, and representatives from industry and government representatives and interactive workshops discussions. This report details the insights about key issues, factors, challenges, and opportunities for the future that resulted.
