12 Sep Conservation Convention Inspires Hawaiʻi Children – Honolulu Star-Advertiser
Once all of the motions have been adopted, commitments made and the delegates are back home in their far-flung parts of the world, Hawaii will have fulfilled its role as host of the 10-day International Union for Conservation of Nature’s World Conservation Congress 2016.
But what happens next?
For some it will be a renewed commitment to the conservation work they are already doing, with new partnerships or knowledge of how technology can be used to meet their goals. For others it might be a greater awareness of endangered species after visiting booths and pavilions in the Hawai‘i Convention Center’s exhibition hall. And some will just be glad that blocked-off parking spaces at Ala Moana Beach Park are open again.
