Program IPS Brussels Meetings
The International Peat Society has, together
with its partners, prepared a joint Strategy which lists actions and objectives for the responsible management of peatlands on a worldwide basis.
The Strategy will be signed at a festive ceremony at the Renaissance Hotel in Brussels on 28 October 2009. In addition, we have planned meetings of IPS Commission II, the Executive Board and the Scientific Advisory Board to take place at the same venue on 27 and 29 October.
