WWViews on Biodiversity
On Saturday September 15th 2012, thousands of people around the world will take part in a global event: “World Wide Views on Biodiversity”. The project will engage ordinary citizens in as many countries as possible in the process of policymaking and awareness raising to sustain a living and healthy planet. At least a hundred citizens in each participating country will attend day-long meetings to learn about biodiversity issues, make up their minds about them, and express their views. The meetings will start at dawn in the Pacific and continue until dusk in the Americas. All meetings will have the same agenda and use the same approach in order to make results comparable and useful for policymakers gathering the following month in India to discuss future policy measures for preserving biological diversity.

WWViews on Biodiversity

2012年9月15日、「World Wide Views(世界市民会議)」が世界数十カ国で同時開催されます。この会議の目的は、可能な限り市民が政策決定プロセスへ参画すること、そして、地球を健全に維持することの大切さを伝えること。各国の会場にそれぞれおよそ100人の市民が集まり、同じ日に、同じスケジュールで、同じメソッドを使ってディスカッションを実施します。当日は、まず生物多様性問題についての講義のあと、グループに分かれてディスカッションを重ね、最後に問題に対する市民の意思をまとめます。この会議は世界中で同じ日に行われ、日本を含む太平洋地域が先陣を切り、アメリカ大陸の国々が有終の美を飾ることになります。
