Celebrating ‪#‎IndigenousDay‬ at ‪#‎IUCNCongress‬ ‪#‎COP13‬ http://planeta.com/1608wishlist

All events can be more engaging.

In particular, we’d like to see international events more inclusive and more beneficial for everyone by means of conscious, responsible, eco, sustainable tourism. Let’s measure how well this occurs at the two major conservation events taking place this year: the IUCN World Conservation Congress and the CBD COP13.

Today – the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples aka #IndigenousDay – we explore how these events could be more relevant by being friendly to Indigenous Peoples. The following slides are a wish list for discussion and evaluation before, during and after the event. Please pay attention to #6.

This year, the Great Barrier Reef has been hit by the most severe coral bleaching event on record, with climate change causing an increase in ocean temperatures. This has compounded existing strains on the reef with poor water quality, increasing industrial development, unsustainable fishing practices and other pressures causing a decline in corals and other marine animals.
