Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research
Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy
Approved on 16 February 2017
SCAR is charged with initiating, developing and coordinating high quality international scientific research in the Antarctic region (including the Southern Ocean), and on the role of the Antarctic region in the Earth system. Our activities mainly deal with adult researchers and stakeholders, however there are times where children or vulnerable adults do participate, particularly in outreach events. We are committed to keeping the welfare of any child or vulnerable adult who is involved with any of our activities paramount and to ensuring that everyone participating in our activities is valued, listened to and respected.
