The 13th Conference of Parties to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS COP13) concluded on Saturday with the conference adopting Gandhinagar Resolution calling on the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity that the latter’s proposed post-2020 global biodiversity framework include a clear commitment for international, regional, bilateral and transboundary cooperation for its implementation and for improving ecological connectivity.
Young Green Leaders visited to the conference exhibition to get a better understanding of work on migratory species and an exposure to international conferences around environment conservation. We have been promoting such experiential exposure visits and participation to environment events and conferences to provide an insight of the current crisis and develop the vision of the current change makers in taking decision to bring change.
A team of 7 Green Leaders engaged with more than 50 organisations working in the field of Wildlife Conservation in India and across the planet. The workshops were designed to address the critical issue of habitat lose, species extinction, poaching and conservation efforts. Students participated a quiz on wildlife and Conservation and our Green Leaders performed exceptionally well. We were able to provide such exposure with help of Mr. Anurag Kandya (Professor- Environment Department; Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University) and we are looking forward to strengthen our ecosystem locally to create more exposure opportunities for our Green Leaders.
