15 Sep The IUCN World Conservation Congress, Barcelona, 5-14 October 2008
During 5-14 October 2008, more than 8,000 of the world’s leading decision makers in sustainable development gather in Barcelona, Spain: from governments, NGOs, business, the UN and academia. Together in one place for 10 days they will debate, share, network, learn, commit, vote and will make important decisions. Their objective will be to come up with ideas, action and solutions for a diverse and sustainable world.
Three major issues are in the spotlight:
- How we deal with climate change, globalization, and energy demand
- How healthy environments contribute to healthy communities and economies
- How we safeguard the unique diversity of life in all its forms.
During the Congress, the Delos Initiative was present in one Knowledge Cafe, several Alliance Workshops, the Sacred Natural Sites Custodians Dialogue -organised by the Task Force on Cultural and Spiritual Protected Areas- as well as other activities arranged by other Themes and Task Forces. It also exhibited a poster portraying the accomplishments attained during the past three years.
