Hollywood actor Edward Norton,

along with the Executive Secretary of the Convention on

Biological Diversity (CBD) Ahmed Djoghlaf,

and noted scientists Eric Chivian and Thomas Lovejoy, will discuss what is at stake in the global discussions and how citizens can become involved. This discussion will take place at United Nations General Assembly today

The high-level meeting on biodiversity of the General Assembly on 22 September marks a major observance of the International Year of Biodiversity and will generate momentum toward a successful conclusion to next month’s Conference of the Parties to the CBD (COP 10) in Nagoya, Japan, where countries will consider new strategy and commitments to ensure the preservation of biodiversity and measures to stem its loss.
