Be part of a global event on September 15, 2012 at the Marian Koshland Science Museum in Washington, DC where one hundred citizens from Maryland, Virginia, and DC will attend a deliberation on biodiversity issues. Join in as citizens from more than 30 nations learn about and discuss issues concerning the conservation of Earth’s rich diversity of life: see: http://biodiversity.wwviews.org/. All perspectives are welcome. Add your voice to the process of global environmental governance and build awareness about the variety of ways we can solve problems associated with biodiversity loss.
APPLY NOW to join in this important conversation and make recommendations that will inform policy discussions at the United Nations Biodiversity convention in October and inform policy maker decisions here in the United States. One hundred citizens from across Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland will be chosen to participate. An application is required to attend this program.
