We have waited a long time for the birth of such a tool which, in addition to being in line with the times, allows us to continue the debate without regard to time and distance, to share the results and to capitalize on what we have learned.
The Virtual Hub is a revolutionary platform in the field of biodiversity conservation. In addition to promoting exchanges, it allows to make contacts and discuss in real time with the actors of the field. I have not regretted having registered.
An all-in-one tool for the emulation of ideas and the scaling up of successful experiences. Moreover, the training space animated by experts is a godsend in that it allows an effective popularization of knowledge and a reinforcement of the capacities of the actors.
Pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of the Virtual Hub in its mission to instill a regional dynamic for the proper management of protected areas and climate risks, sharing and capitalization of experiences and knowledge at all levels.
In the era of COVID-19 and the accelerated digitalization of processes, this platform comes at the right time. Thanks to the Virtual Hub, I am able to follow in real time the evolution of biodiversity conservation and all this at my fingertips.
Climate change is now a transboundary phenomenon. An inclusive approach is, therefore, the only sustainable option available to us. The Virtual Hub allows us to coordinate our efforts in the conservation of Biodiversity.
