The Ottawa Convention Centre is a unique venue with magnificent views of the surrounding city. The centre is also committed to being an environmentally healthy meeting facility, with low levels of water consumption, locally sourced building materials and a highly efficient heating system.
It is located close to the airport and to numerous other attractions, such as the National Gallery of Canada. Ottawa, considered to be the 3rd cleanest city in the world, is within easy reach of some spectacular areas of natural beauty, such as Niagara Falls, Lake Ontario and Gatineau Park. Nature Canada and Bird Studies Canada will be organising various excursions during the congress period to see some of these surrounding natural features.
All in all, The Ottawa Convention Centre should make for a spectacular venue for the 2013 BirdLife World Congress and will no doubt inspire a great deal of fruitful discussion and collaboration between the BirdLife Partners.
BirdLife warmly invites you to attend this special event in Ottawa.
The next BirdLife World Congress will be held between the 19th and 22nd of June 2013 at the Ottawa Convention Centre in Canada and will be hosted by Nature Canada and Bird Studies Canada (BirdLife Partners in Canada).
The work of the BirdLife Partnership goes beyond birds, benefiting nature and people, and goes beyond today to impact the future. Read about our work in 2013 which had positive impacts for biodiversity, and on the human communities who depend on the natural products and ecosystem services provided by Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs).
For the eighth time, people in now 49 countries in Europe, Africa and Central Asia looked out for winged heralds of spring as part of the BirdLife International educational project called Spring Alive.
