Linking Journalism with the Web of Life
I would like to invite you to participate in the World Wide Views (WWViews) on Biodiversity process. WWViews on Biodiversity wants to address and discuss the challenges that impede the safeguarding of biodiversity.
WWViews on Biodiversity is an ambitious, global citizen participation project on global biodiversity policies and actions. The project is coordinated by the Danish Board of Technology, with support from Biofaction (Markus Schmidt), and it is our attempt to enable citizen participation on a global scale. The project has the full support of the UN Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and is funded by the Danish Ministry of the Environment and the Villum Foundation.
We are currently preparing for a global citizen day in over 30 countries where we will ask citizens about a number of biodiversity related issue, especially those that may cause political conflict due to conflict of interests between different groups/stakeholders (e.g. developed vs. developing countries, farmers vs. conservationist, indigenous people vs. industry)
To enable the search for the most conflict prone issues, we initiated a web survey:
Filling the survey will take about 10-15 minutes. We encourage you to make use of the comment box to express your views. The survey is anonymous and will be open until 20th of February 2012.
The results of this questionnaire will be analyzed and help us find the right questions to be asked during the global WWViews citizen events.
Further information on the project can be found on the Project Website: http://biodiversity.wwviews.org
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the survey. If you would like any additional information about the review, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Kind regards, Markus Schmidt
WWViews questions coordinator
