Although the United States has not ratified the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), U.S. communities are stepping up their action for nature in support of CBD outcomes. To meet the moment in this “Super Year for Nature”, when the UN convenes its Nature Conference, ICLEI USA is preparing a 6-part “Biodiversity Bootcamp” learning-and-leadership virtual training series that will open a pathway for U.S. communities to engage with the CBD proceedings unlike ever before. Running each Monday from July 18 – August 22, 2022, the bootcamp will offer participating U.S. cities and their partners a sequential program that includes technical training supplemented by inspiring messages from mayors and local leaders taking action for nature.
COG local government members are eligible to participate in ICLEI member events/opportunities because COG has a regional ICLEI membership. For more information about this opportunity, visit ICLEI.
