IUCN will host over 100 events at World Summit
7 August 2002 - Daily Futures Dialogues, business opportunities, special launches and press events are some of the activities that will be going off at the IUCN Environment Centre in Johannesburg, a stone's throw from the Summit conference site.
Daily Futures Dialogues - open debates with leading figures from civil society and the public and private sector - on controversial and pertinent issues on the Summit agenda. Among the participants are Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, the chairman of Business Action for Sustainable Development, acclaimed Indian author and Booker Prize winner Arundhati Roy, and Green Cross President Mikhail Gorbachev.
The events will include:
The IUCN Environment Centre is located within the Headquarters of Nedcor Bank Limited on 135 Rivonia Road, Sandton, Johannesburg, which is a 10-minute walk from the Convention Centre; across the street from the Hilton Hotel where the Business Action for Sustainable Development exhibition will take place; and 15 minutes by bus from the Ubuntu Village. Please note that entry to the IUCN Environment Centre may be gained with UN accreditation or Global Forum registration.
The IUCN Environment Centre programme is available online.
