A symposium at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, marked the 25th Anniversary of World Land Trust (WLT).
Key representatives from WLT’s current programme partners attended. IUCN National Committee of the Netherlands (IUCN NL), BirdLife International, Rainforest Trust, Acciónatura and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew were also be represented.
In partnership with IUCN NL, WLT has held five symposia for conservation partners since 2006. All five meetings have been highly productive, and are strengthening WLT’s Conservation Alliance – a network of like-minded protagonists, all working towards achieving a common goal of nature conservation.
WLT has 29 programme partners working in 23 different countries and the symposium provided opportunities to discuss the further development of the Conservation Alliance.
The symposium included an event on 6 May to celebrate WLT’s 25th Anniversary. The event was held at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in Central London. WLT’s Patron, Sir David Attenborough was present and there was a reception for all symposium participants beforehand.
(Priority tickets to the evening event at BAFTA were offered to WLT Friends and Ambassadors as a thank you for their support; there was an unprecedented response and tickets to the evening event were sold out.)
