Wetland Centre side event at the Ramsar COP12람사르습지총회-1

WLI is working with ERF South Korea (Environmental Ecosystem Research Foundation) to hold a side event on the work of wetland centres around the globe, and how they support delivery of Ramsar’s CEPA programme (Communication, Education, Participation and Awareness).  The Ramsar COP (Convention of the Parties) happens every three years, and brings together the contracting parties (countries that have signed up to Ramsar), this year in Uruguay, South America.  This is our chance to promote the role of wetland centres, and highlight why they are so important.

You can help us with this!  Find out who your Ramsar representatives are (either government of NGO) at the Ramsar website, and ask them to attend out side event, or if you are at the COP, please attend too.  It will take place on Wednesday the 3rd of June, from 18.15 to 19.45, and you can download the flyer right here (see above).  Thanks for your help!
