JANE GOODALL OF CONSERVATION BIOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS 2011-2012 AWARD
The University of Alicante has created, in agreement with the Instituto Jane Goodall Spain, chair Jane Goodall, which has among its objectives the analysis, research, training and dissemination in conservation of the environment, including local human societies as players in the process. To contribute to these goals both institutions have decided to create the prize Jane Goodall of conservation biology and environmental ethics, concepts which are closely linked and in which the distinguished primatologist is an international reference.
This award seeks to recognize the work of persons or institutions who have made significant contributions to the conservation of the environment and sustainable development in any part of the world, which in turn will contribute to the development of environmental ethics in society.
On Wednesday, January 9 the awards ceremony of the II Prize Jane Goodall of conservation biology and environmental ethics, will take place at 20 h. in the city of Alicante from the AU headquarters. The award-winning, Carmen Vidal, who develops its work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, will give a lecture on his work, entitled "strategies for the conservation of biodiversity and sustainable development through education and training of communities: experiences in South Kivu (Democratic Republic of the Congo)".
