BGCI's 7th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens, 1 - 6 November 2009, Durban, South Africa

The title of BGCI's 7th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens is: ‘Action Learning: places, spaces and partnerships for biodiversity and human wellbeing.'

This encapsulates the dynamic and relevant role of botanic gardens today. In just 20 years botanic gardens have moved from being passive deliverers of information to leading institutions for plant-based education. Programmes are informative, innovative and fun, inspiring children and adults alike to connect with plants and make changes to their lives for conservation and sustainability.
