Event Description

The EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 recognises that biodiversity is our “life insurance and our natural capital”. The European Parliament emphasises that the loss of biodiversity “has devastating economic costs for society which until now have not been integrated sufficiently into economic and other policies”. To highlight the wonders of biodiversity - and marine nature in particular - two Marine Experience Educational Workshops will be presented the Marine Dimensions organisations via the Europe Direct Centre on Wednesday 21st August. These workshops are free, but prior booking is essential.
