This year, The Convention on Wetlands is celebrating its 50th Anniversary since the Convention was signed by the delegates of 18 nations on 2 February 1971.

The Secretariat is sharing a range of resources to highlight and celebrate this milestone, including a 50th Anniversary logo.

The anniversary logo builds on the existing Convention logo, and is intended to help increase the visibility of the Convention through the year and in the build-up to the 14th meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties (COP14) to be held in Wuhan, China. The logo was endorsed by the Parties on the Subgroup on COP14 of the Standing Committee, who welcomed its elegant representation and extension of the Convention’s identity.

The logo can be downloaded and used for a range of applications, from email signatures to social media content. It can be found on the 50th Anniversary website as well as guidelines on its use. We hope you will celebrate this important milestone by showing your recognition of the Convention’s achievements over five decades and your commitment to its mission for the decades to come!
