    Everyone is invited to attend a workshop entitled “From Rhetoric to Reality: Exploring Laws, Customary Governance and No-Go Area Policies for the Protection of Sacred Natural Sites” at the World Conservation Congress (WCC) 2016 in Honolulu. The summary of the workshop is as follows:

    From mountains to rivers, forest groves to coral reefs – sacred natural sites “connect the dots” between biodiversity conservation, ecosystem integrity, cultural heritage and climate mitigation. We invite you to learn from successful strategies for protecting indigenous sacred natural sites and territories, from Hawai’i, Altai, Mongolia, Uganda, Benin, USA, Myanmar and other stunning bio-cultural land and seascapes, and contribute to shifting the discourse to effective policy and practice.

    If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please take note of the following:
