Plan Bleu/RAC has strongly mobilized for the IUCN World Conservation Congress and will be present, with partners, in eight sessions/events mainly on the “Mediterranean solutions” pavilion to highlight Mediterranean solutions and specificities as well as on the French Pavilion in partnership with the French Ministry of Ecological Transition. For the first time, 12 conservation organizations including Plan Bleu have joined forces and are mobilizing through this “Mediterranean Solutions” pavilion to promote action and a revival by nature of the Mediterranean basin.
