The IUCN World Conservation Congress, held every four years, brings together several thousand global leaders and decision-makers from government, NGO and UN agencies, civil society, indigenous peoples, grass-roots organizations, business, and academia with the goal of conserving the environment and developing a more sustainable future. This fall, Hawaiʻi will be the first US venue to host this key world gathering.
In advance of the IUCN World Conservation Congress Hawaiʻi 2016, Planet at the Crossroads, UH Mānoa Summer Sessions, administered by Outreach College, will offer an array of programs including credit courses (online and on campus), certificate programs, hands-on environmental activities, films, lectures, and a Sustainable Summer Day focusing on conservation and sustainability.
These programs will provide venues for learning and stimulate interest in the IUCNʻs goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.
Sustainable Summer ʻ16 looks forward to the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) World Conservation Congress Hawaiʻi 2016, Planet at the Crossroads, September 1-10, 2016. For more information, visit iucnworldconservationcongress.org.
