Synopsis Although the Arctic and Antarctica are both polar regions their position as geographic opposites has resulted in a number of differences, not limited to the temperature of the polar currents. With the melting of the polar ice cap, the Arctic is beginning to be opened up to commercial shipping. The landscape now includes structures like oil rigs. By contrast, a number of countries would like to see Antarctica as a nature reserve without any commercial exploitation.

The symposium The Arctic and Antarctica: Differing Currents of Change held on 27 February 2015 in Wellington was initiated up by the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs to expose the range of issues related to the northern and southern polar regions, the threats and the challenges, and what nations and individuals might do to mitigate the risks. This symposium brought together speakers from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand to consider the serious environmental and commercial challenges, the influence of the great powers, and what the future may hold for these unique environments.
