The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity is hosting, from 2-18 October 2013 in Montreal, three major United Nations meetings on biodiversity.
In conjunction with these meetings, experts from Montreal and around the world will give a series of talks on the role business, science and traditional knowledge play in the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.
Don't miss a great lecture with Dr. Alan C. Logan, the naturopathic doctor and well-published scientific author, who co-wrote with physician Dr. Eva Selhub, the new book Your Brain On Nature: The Science of Nature’s Influence on Your Health, Happiness, and Vitality. Scientific studies have shown that natural environments can have remarkable benefits for human health. Natural environments are more likely to promote positive emotions; and viewing and walking in nature have been associated with heightened physical and mental energy.
