August 5, 2010

This year is the "International Year of Biodiversity" as proclaimed by the United Nations. All member states of the UN have been encouraged to set up a National Committee to mark the celebration of IYB, with representatives from a wide range of stakeholders.
In response to the UN's call, the MOE called on academic experts and relevant organizations to form the National Committee for IYB, with its first meeting dubbed as the "Committee for Life on Earth" held in January of this year.
The second meeting of the committee will take place on Tuesday, August 10, in order to examine the interim report on the activities of the national committee and to discuss how to proceed from here.
Also, the official website was launched to introduce activities undertaken by the committee. Please visit http://iybj.jp/ (Japanese only).
