Initiated by the International Polar Foundation and supported by the governments of both Belgium's Flemish and French communities, 'Class Zero Emission' will be launched on March 2nd, 2009, in Brussels. This interactive exhibition centre serves to introduce students to the breathtaking world of the Arctic and Antarctic.

Through this interactive exhibition centre, students will learn about the landscape and animal life so typical to these regions and discover the research and exploration undertaken around the poles. By trying things out for themselves, students will carry out experiments and learn all about how these fragile regions are essential when it comes to studying climate change. The exhibition centre also devotes a special chapter to the unique 'Princess Elisabeth Antarctica' station, first 'zero emission' research station. It offers instructive information about the preparation expeditions, the two-year construction period, the station's technology and the polar scientific research which is using the station as a hub.

The exhibition centre allows students to get involved in the global debate about climate change and encourages them to choose sustainable solutions in their everyday life. It also offers teachers educational packages which can later be used to conduct fascinating class projects.
