Visioning workshop to COP15, April 2024

What will WWN do at the 15th Conference of Parties to the Convention on Wetlands? WWN members and other civil society actors can join a visioning workshop on 16 April 2024 to get us there.

We will host the same workshop twice, to accommodate as many timezones as possible. You only need to attend one workshop.

  • Summary

We will use Zoom’s Polls and Surveys features to gather information such as who will attend COP15, who would attend if funding were provided, etc. We will also use Zoom’s AI translated subtitles to enable as many people as possible to attend. Here is our guide to using the translations, and here is the list of available languages.
