The first part of Go4BioDiv 2012 took place in the Sundarbans, India’s unique marine World Heritage site, from October 6 to 15, 2012. Here, the Messengers got to know each other, learned more about the issues at stake and developed their output for CoP-11. They then joined CoP-11 from October 16 to 19 during the High-Level Segment to present their messages to decision-makers and the wider public. The whole event was prepared and accompanied by a strong virtual exchange via an online platform, creative tasks as well as extensive press work.
