We need you to Colour Our Place, Scott Base!

Scott Base is Aotearoa New Zealand's place in Antarctica. That's why we want Kiwis to feel connected to our home on the ice and choose what colour it should be. From Sir Ed Hillary's dash to the South Pole by tractor to the excellence of New Zealand Antarctic science, Kiwis have a long history of exploration and research on the continent. The Scott Base Redevelopment will see the current buildings replaced with a fit-for-purpose base powered by 97% renewable energy, which means we can keep supporting science for another 50+ years. You can play a part in that. Voting closes midnight 14 June 2022. Each person gets one vote, so make it count!
