Looking forward to the 2008 IUCN Congress: Marine Guide

28 August 2008 | News story

The IUCN Congress in Barcelona this October will feature over 100 marine-related events. The IUCN Global Marine Programme has issued a flier to highlight these and display a first timetable of the main marine workshops.


At the Conservation Forum part of the Congress, marine conservation and sustainability issues will enjoy an unprecedented amount of coverage with a very diverse cross-section of thematic workshops (see the attachment), publication launches, social events, training courses, media debates, exhibitions, expedition launches and film screenings.
