Global Initiative on The Wise Use of Nature
Every day we bring our visitors face to face with the planet’s biggest challenges.
At Rio 2012, a gathering of world leaders will address our environmental future. We have knowledge and skills they need.
It’s time they heard from us.
Platform 2022 is a partnership between ICOM NATHIST, The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) and Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI).
The world’s natural history museums are institutions that define and interpret relationships between life, community and the world through the assmbly and display of objects, experience, and the environment.
The International Committee for Museums and collections of Natural History (ICOM-NATHIST) is one of ICOM’s specialist International Committees.
Natural history museums also engage the public to form deep bonds
with the natural world and commit to its preservation.
