Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Glacier National Park Community Building
Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow and Climate Change Research Coordinator Dan Fagre will share their experience at the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Parks Congress, held in Sydney, Australia this past fall. Jeff and Dan will tell you what they learned and observed, and in particular, will share their observations on how Glacier National Park fits into the world of global conservation.
The IUCN is an international organization working in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. The IUCN implements a variety of theme-based programmes, one of which is its Protected Areas Programme. The World Parks Congress is a decadal event that celebrates protected areas, addresses global challenges and opportunities, and establishes standards to ensure that protective areas are effective, and a source of inspiration and innovation. The 2014 World Parks Congress is the sixth Congress to be held since the first Congress held in Seattle, USA in 1962.
