IUCN invited its Members, both government and NGO, together with partners to a social evening in order to network and discuss ‘Nature based Solutions to Climate Change - IUCN on the road to Copenhagen’.
Organised by Susanna Söderström and hosted by Stewart Maginnis, the event took place on Thursday 4th June in the evening, at the Tao restaurant. Drinks and dinner were served, and music was provided (which allowed for after dinner dancing!).
The event was well attended, with around 100 participants, who were pleased with the opportunity provided for networking and making new contacts as well as lifting IUCN’s profile within the UNFCCC process. We will be looking to organising similar events at future important meetings in the UNFCCC calendar.
