8th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens Resources

From 12-16 November 2012, BGCI’s 8th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens was held in Mexico City and hosted by the Institute of Biology Botanic Garden at UNAM, a world renowned organisation of excellence in plant conservation, education and botany.

This was the first time BGCI’s Education Congress has been held in Latin America. We were delighted to receive 150 delegates from 31 countries with 11 delegates supported to attend the Congress through the Sylvia Scholarship fund.

The theme of the Congress was Education and the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC). During a stimulating week of keynote speeches, presentations, workshops and posters, delegates examined how their education work can support the implementation of all 16 targets of the GSPC.
