CEC Newsletter - March 2010

22 March 2010 | News story

The March 2010 issue of the IUCN CEC newsletter features action related to Biodiversity and Climate Change as well as new tools and resources. CEC is pleased to profile Sue Mainka, Wendy Price, Nancy Colleton and Gillian Martin Mehers, along with award winners Arturo Curiel and Suzana Padua.

Dear CEC members,

IUCN has just fixed the date for the next World Conservation Congress, to be held 6 to 15 September 2012 on Jeju Island, Republic of Korea. With this date in mind, it is time to drive the CEC strategic plan forward. Next month our Steering Committee will meet in Scotland for an in-depth session to set priorities for action before Congress in Jeju.

In this newsletter, I am pleased to introduce Sue Mainka and Wendy Price, both with significant roles in support of CEC at IUCN headquarters. I also welcome Nancy Colleton and Gillian Martin Mehers as CEC Specialty Group Leaders, and our newest National Activators. Also, join me in congratulating CEC Steering Committee members Suzana Padua and Arturo Curiel on winning awards for their professional accomplishments on behalf of conservation and sustainability. 

This round-up of news from CEC members includes exciting work by photographers, filmmakers, writers, trainers and group workshop facilitators. It also offers some practical tools — Ecosystem-based Management, Compendium and "Sell the Sizzle", a guide to creating compelling climate change messages.

With best regards,
Keith Wheeler, CEC Chair
