The Space for Life: a place, a commitment, a movement

Espace pour la Vie --- (“Space for Life” that brings together the Montreal Biodome, Insectarium, Botanical Garden and Planetarium)

Date and Time
16 October 2012 12:15 - 13:45

Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 11)

The Montreal’s Biodôme, Insectarium, Botanical Garden and Planetarium are launching a daring, creative urban movement, urging everyone to rethink the bonds between humankind and nature. The Montreal Space for Life is also a place where people come together to create, cultivate a new way of living, shaped by Montrealers and people from around the world. The Space for Life is a frame of mind, a way of experiencing nature. It’s a relay race where people take up the cause of biodiversity and pass the message along to other people, like a growing wave of determination.
