Engage in a live dialogue with a senior advisor to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Stephen Woodley, who is an expert on strategies for reaching ambitious habitat and biodiversity conservation goals. Stephen will be joined by Crista Valentino and Elaine Hsiao, who are helping to lead efforts to engage a new generation in the global biodiversity conservation movement. Stephen, Elaine, and Crista will be talking about plans for the upcoming IUCN World Parks Congress, to be held in Sydney, Australia, in November 2014.
Taking the theme of Parks, People, Planet -- Inspiring Solutions, the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 will advance an ambitious agenda that will inspire solutions for today's most pressing global challenges. As a prestigious global gathering of protected area leaders and professionals and the wider cross-section of society, with a legacy of collaboration and innovation dating back to the inaugural event in 1961, this World Parks Congress promises to build a dynamic foundation for achieving conservation and development goals for the decade to come.
Our moderator will be James Levitt, Director of the Program on Conservation Innovation at the Harvard Forest, Harvard University, and a Fellow at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
