Convention on Biodiversity

The College of the Atlantic students and faculty attending the Conference of the Parties to the U.N. Convention on Biodiversity, and the Meeting of the Parties to the Convention on Biosafety, continue to post many updates on their blog , where did my genes go?.

Some recent highlights include:

  1. COA student Kate Thompkins delivering a statement on genetic use restriction technologies at a working group meeting.

  2. A report from COA faculty member Doreen Stabinsky on the landless people's movement and bearing witness on Syngenta's illegal field trials.

  3. A similar report from COA student Elsie Flemings: The Struggle for Life and Land: a story of the Landless Workers Movement. Elsie's report has some excellent pictures.
