Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the URBIO board we would like to send our deepest condolences to our Japanese friends who were so badly affected by the 11th march 2011 earthquake, tsunami and serious problems resulting from damaged nuclear power plants. We also extend our deepest condolences to our friends in New Zealand who were hit by 2 earthquakes on 4th September 2010 and another on Tuesday, 22nd February 2011 and to our friends in the Pacific affected by earlier extensive floods in January and February.

The environmental impacts will be long lasting and we hope that we can find ways to help our friends in the recovery efforts. Please contact us with any suggestions on how our URBIO network can be used to support our friends.


Also the new URBIO newsletter has been sent today, featuring information on Global Partnership, upcoming conferences, new literature and a call for papers from an online journal.
