I am hastily heading to the World Conservation Forum in Barcelona, which starts next week. Here, more than 8,000 of the world's leading decision makers in sustainable development will convene: from governments, NGOs, business, the UN and academia. Together in one place for 10 days, they will to debate, share, network, learn, commit, vote and decide. Their objectives: ideas, action and solutions for a diverse and sustainable world.
Many of the session will be streamed live, including dozens of marine-focused sessions. Here is a link to those sessions.
The top article under the link, "World Conservation Forum," lists some of the "highlights" of the IUCN Red List. ("IUCN Red List reveals world's mammals in crisis") What a list it is too! I wonder how many of the general public really know what's going on?
