Place: Sydney, Australia
Held once every 10 years, the IUCN World Parks Congress provides a unique opportunity to bring about change, not only for today, or tomorrow, but for the decade ahead. It will be a gathering not just for protected area professionals but for everyone who cares about the health of humanity and our natural world. On behalf of the IUCN and its partners, Parks Australia and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services, I encourage you all to join us on this journey and help provide inspiring solutions for our planet’s most precious natural areas.
Congress registration is now open online (http://www.eubon.eu/internal/events/10552_IUCN%20World%20Parks%20Congress%202014/1/). The ‘Early Bird’ registration fee is available until 30 June, and you can also benefit from the preferential rates for IUCN Members, Commission members and staff.
An excellent way to keep up to date is to visit the World Parks Congress website (http://www.worldparkscongress.org/index.html) and to subscribe to the Congress newsletter(http://www.eubon.eu/internal/events/10552_IUCN%20World%20Parks%20Congress%202014/1/).
