Los materiales para el Día Mundial de los Humedales ya están listos para su distribución

El 2 de febrero de cada año es el Día Mundial de los Humedales y todos los años desde 1997 organismos oficiales, organizaciones no gubernamentales y grupos de ciudadanos de todos los niveles de la comunidad han aprovechado la oportunidad para realizar actos y actividades encaminados a aumentar la sensibilización del público en general acerca de los valores de los humedales y los beneficios que reportan en general y la Convención de Ramsar en concreto. In 2004, se nos hizo llegar noticia a la Secretaría de unos 250 actos celebrados en 85 países y fueron descritos en nuestras páginas Web (http://ramsar.org/wwd2004_reports.htm).


Le matériel de la JMZ est prêt pour la distribution !

Chaque année le 2 février, nous célébrons la Journée mondiale des zones humides, et chaque année depuis 1997, des organismes gouvernementaux, des organisations non gouvernementales et des groupes de citoyens à tous les niveaux de la société profitent de l'occasion pour lancer des actions de sensibilisation du public aux valeurs et aux avantages des zones humides en général, et de la Convention de Ramsar en particulier. En 2004, 250 événements, dans 85 pays nous ont été rapportés au Secrétariat et peuvent être consultés à l'adresse suivante : http://ramsar.org/wwd2004_reports.htm).


World Wetlands Day 2005 materials ready for distribution

World Wetlands Day falls on 2 February every year, and each year since 1997, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and groups of citizens at all levels of the community have taken advantage of the opportunity to undertake actions aimed at raising public awareness of wetland values and benefits in general and the Ramsar Convention in particular. In 2004, some 250 events in 85 countries were reported to us in the Secretariat and described on our Web pages.

Every year, with generous financial assistance from the private sector Danone Group, the Secretariat has offered a new selection of posters, stickers, videos, pocket calendars, leaflets and information packs free of charge, and this year is no exception - an attractive and thought-provoking poster and three new stickers have been produced and are now available in English, French, or Spanish for event organizers all over the world, as well as in electronic format for those who might wish to customize them or print large quantities for themselves. In a break from the past, this year stocks of these materials have been shipped to the Convention's Administrative Authorities in the national governments of member States, and we are providing a list of contacts in all of these countries to whom event organizers should direct their requests in the first instance.
