Public Lecture on Communication, Education, and Public Awareness (CEPA)

The concept of "Community Education Public Awareness(CEPA)" was adopted in the Ramsar Conference of Parties (COP). It is now regarded as an important element for sustainable development, to effectively address the ecological, social, cultural and economic values of wetlands. It also requires the involvement of local communities for wetland conservation and sustainable use of wetlands. In this public lecture, our speakers from Singpore, Japan and Hong Kong will share with you examples of CEPA programme in wetland education centres in different regions.
