Watch LIVE now! We're about to begin! 
The IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 will begin with an official opening ceremony combining formality with world-class entertainment to welcome delegates from around the world.

The event will kick off with a traditional welcome to country from Australia’s First People with an Aboriginal smoking ceremony, dance and music performances to promote the rich cultural heritage of the host country, Australia. IUCN President Mr Zhang Xinsheng will open the congress with an address followed by respective Australian government and NSW environment ministers.

Mr Luvuyo Mandela will pay tribute to his great grandfather Nelson Mandela, patron of the last IUCN World Parks Congress in South Africa. The ceremony will also include a handover of the Congress to the Australian hosts and an introduction to the Congress patrons and champions.

Through a spectacular live and audio visual performance, delegates will also see a showcase of some of the unique and precious natural areas from across the world and be reminded just how critical they are to our planet, our health and our survival.

Just over a yea ago I started on this amazing project. The role a cross between digital and the environment - heaven for me.

Today, the 6th IUCN #WorldParksCongress begins with people like Jane Goodall, Richard Branson, Luvoyo Mandela and Sylvia Earle all participating. NASA, Google, governments, enviro-orgs etc all coming together for this.

What an incredible journey this has been. Looking forward to sharing this with the world this evening.
