Getting out of our silos: illustration

What can an ecologist learn from an engineer? What can an engineer learn from an ecologist? The latest IUCN corporate posters - the back covers of the last two issues of World Conservation - illustrate the changing paradigm and the new trend of 'getting out of our silos'.

The interaction between ecology and economy is not anymore about the one winning and the other losing. It is about joint learning for sustainable development. Conservation and sustainable use not as a goal in itself, but as a means towards sustainable development.

I like the positioning of IUCN- bringing experts together to help solve our most pressing sustainable development challenges.
