November was highlighted for me by the IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. This even happens once every 10 years and is an opportunity for people around the world to share stories, help each other and better understand the state of what is happening in our world's protected areas. I was brought on to graphic record for the National Park Service as they co-led the Responding to Climate Change Stream, one of eight major themes throughout the week-long event attended by over 6,000 people from around the world.
Below are images of live and on-site studio recordings from the event -- the latter synthesizing key ideas reported over 5 days of sessions in the Stream.
It was inspiring and humbling to see so many passionate people around the world working and making commitments to improve our global terrestrial and marine protected areas.
