The Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) is petition gathering project that requires signature heads of government for it to take effect. MAPS also has the general signature for people to also sign up to, and that way we can get their leaders to sign the treaty. So far in partnership with Parvati we have been able to get the signature of the prime minister of Samoa who has signed to the MAPS treaty. Other nations have been served the MAPS treaty and are at various degrees to affect the implementation of the Treaty that tries to create a global sanctuary for the Arctic Ocean and lives in the region. By 2030 we hope all signatures would have been collected.
