Terralingua had a significant presence at the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) 4th World Conservation Congress, held in Barcelona in October 2008, We co-sponsored three resolutions: “Integrating Culture and Cultural Diversity into IUCN’s Policy and Programme”; “IUCN Adoption of Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”; and “Recognition and Conservation of Sacred Natural Sites in Protected Areas”, all of which were adopted by the IUCN Members’ Assembly.
