COURSE: International Certificate in Botanic Garden Management in the Asia Pacific Region, Singapore, 5 - 20th March 2010

Working individually and collectively botanic gardens are in a strong position to help address the primary conservation and development challenges of our time: biodiversity loss and climate change. This new two-week training course covers major present-day themes of practical conservation work at botanic gardens. It is designed to help representatives from the Asia Pacific region involved in botanic garden and arboretum management (in particular horticultural staff and mid-level managers) refresh their existing skills, understand global environmental policy, explore new ideas and engage with botanic garden experts from around the world.

The course is run by BGCI, BGANZ and Singapore Botanic Gardens. The deadline for receipt of course and scholarship applications is 30 November 2009. For more information click here .
