2010 is International Year of Biodiversity
Sunday 10 January 2010
The United Nations has named 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity, marking the year with a roll-out of international activities submitted by independent organizers. The current schedule of events includes opportunities to learn about biodiversity at museums, zoos, galleries, gardens, and research institutes worldwide.
Among events announced so far are plant/animal hunts at London's Kew Royal Botanic Gardens and San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, a series of workshops and "City Nature" tours in Leiden, Netherlands, an art/science collaboration at the Edinburgh Royal Botanical Gardens, and special biodiversity exhibits at the University of Ottawa and the Gwacheon National Science Museum in South Korea.
In May, a weeklong festival at Rome's Auditorium Parco della Musica will celebrate biodiversity in music, video, poetry, drama, and art. The same month, the 16th annual environmental film festival in Banska Bystrica, Slovakia will be devoted to the International Year of Biodiversity.
