Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation Helps IUCN Launch ‘Unite for Nature’ Magazine
The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is proud to have worked with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to help them launch a groundbreaking member magazine, ‘Unite for Nature.’ This publication is set to serve as a vital platform for IUCN members to share their conservation stories, showcase achievements, and foster a united sense of purpose within the global conservation community.
Named ‘Unite for Nature,’ the magazine embodies the shared vision of IUCN and its members to work collectively towards a just world that values and preserves nature. Through its pages, the magazine will highlight past successes, ongoing initiatives, and plans for the future of conservation. It will draw upon the extensive and diverse environmental network that constitutes the Union of the IUCN, showcasing the vital role of its members in this collaborative effort.
The Living Oceans Foundation takes immense pride in our IUCN membership. This affiliation serves as a testament to the Foundation’s unwavering commitment to the preservation of our planet’s invaluable natural resources. As a member of IUCN, the Foundation gains access to a dynamic network of like-minded individuals and organizations dedicated to effecting positive change in conservation. Working with IUCN embodies our commitment to conducting Science Without Borders® and working with organizations around the world to safeguard our precious natural heritage for generations to come.
Liz Thompson, the Chief Communications Officer of the Living Oceans Foundation, plays a pivotal role in this venture. As a member of the editorial board, Thompson brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the magazine’s development. Her deep commitment to environmental advocacy and extensive knowledge in the field make her an invaluable asset to this project. In addition to her role on the editorial board, Liz works closely with IUCN as a member of IUCN-US’s Membership and Communication Subcommittee. This further reinforces the Foundation’s dedication to advancing the mission of IUCN and fostering meaningful connections within the conservation community.
‘Unite for Nature’ will celebrate the accomplishments of the IUCN community, highlighting their dedication, innovation, and tireless efforts in the pursuit of a sustainable and harmonious relationship with our natural world. The magazine will be published bi-annually in three languages – English, French, and Spanish – ensuring accessibility to a global audience.
Beyond its role as an informative platform, the magazine will provide tangible benefits to IUCN members. Readers can expect to gain insights into IUCN’s conservation tools and stay updated on the latest trends in conservation. The magazine will also serve as a catalyst for building global influence, showcasing how members can actively shape the conservation agenda. Opportunities to engage in on-the-ground conservation projects will be highlighted, enabling members to contribute directly to conservation efforts worldwide.
