World Parks Congress 2014 Live Blog

Event Date: 
Wednesday, November 12 through Wednesday, November 19

Join the OpenChannels Team and friends as we live blog throughout WPC 2014 - the World Parks Congress held in Sydney, Australia from 12-19 November 2014. We will be operating on Australian Eastern Time (GMT+11 with DST) so for you Americans that's 16 hours ahead of Washington, DC, and 19 hours ahead of our office in Seattle. For Europe, that's 11 hours ahead of London.

The live blog will combine short notes from various WPC sessions, including comments from audience members, highlighted tweets via #WorldParksCongress and #WPC2014, and important takeaway messages on conserving our oceans.

You can find just the highlights in our not-so-live blog, Everything (marine) you need to know from the 2014 World Parks Congress.
