Positive Visions for Biodiversity - EPBRS Meeting under the Belgian EU Presidency
16-19 November 2010, Brussels, Belgium
In the context of the International Year for Biodiversity and under the Belgian EU presidency, the EPBRS , the Belgian Biodiversity Platform and the Belgian Science Policy Office are initiating a participatory workshop on ‘Positive Visions for Biodiversity’. Scientific research can only provide the information on the impacts and likely effects of our activities in regard to biodiversity, and can help draw the roadmap to a potentially better destination. But society has to choose which road to follow.
For more information on the objectives, methodology as well as scope and players of this participatory meeting please visit the Workshop Website.
In a Europe-wide contest held alongside the workshop, cartoonists are invited to draw their positive visions for biodiversity. The comic strip must feature the idea that people understand and treasure their place in a complex ecosystem, where humans no longer feel separated from their natural surroundings. Visit the Comics Section of the Workshop Website for more information on the contest and rules for participation.
