Policy Committee going to Brussels

On 9-11th december 2008, the Policy Committee will take part in an official visit of conservation biologists to the European Parliament . The group is being coordinated by the chair of the Policy Committee and the office of the member of European Parliament, David Hammerstein. The goal of the visit is to make a first contact with policy makers at European level and inform them about relevant conservation issues and priorities. Some topics, like Natura 2000 or the protection of Roadless Areas in Europe, are considered by the Policy Committee of special importance to be discussed in the meeting.
