New Sacred Natural Sites guidelines for Protected Area Managers were launched today by IUCN and UNESCO during the biggest environmental meeting of the year, the World Conservation Congress in Barcelona.
The Sacred Site Research Newsletter (SSiReN) was conceived as a means to inform and aggregate the community of researchers working on Sacred Natural Sites. The Newsletter is issued quarterly and warmly welcomes contributions regarding news, events, opportunities, publications, or specific topics related to the link between spiritual beliefs, people and nature.
