Launch of the UN Biodiversity Lab: An Innovative Platform for the Preparation of the Sixth National Report
The movement Love. Not Loss is a call to action by IUCN’s Commission on Education and Communication (CEC), to inspire the conservation community to change its message strategy from loss to a deep sense of awe and wonder. CEC has created a compelling and powerful set of video messages www.iucn.org/lovenotloss/ that artfully convey a positive approach to inspiring hope for creating a healthy and sustainable future.
Attached document gives a brief introduction to the Love.Not Loss Campaign.
The Biodiversity Education and Awareness Network (BEAN) is a network of organizations working together to promote an increased awareness and understanding of biodiversity. Members represent formal and non-formal education, the environmental and conservation sectors, government and private industry.
BEAN's Mission is to build a provincial network that actively develops, delivers and supports biodiversity education and awareness.
