Join the OpenChannels Team and friends as we live blog throughout WPC 2014 - the World Parks Congress held in Sydney, Australia from 12-19 November 2014. We will be operating on Australian Eastern Time (GMT+11 with DST) so for you Americans that's 16 hours ahead of Washington, DC, and 19 hours ahead of our office in Seattle. For Europe, that's 11 hours ahead of London.
The live blog will combine short notes from various WPC sessions, including comments from audience members, highlighted tweets via #WorldParksCongress, and important takeaway messages on conserving our oceans.
You'll be able to virtually attend WPC with us. Have a question or a comment? Simply login to the CoverItLive interface with your Twitter or Facebook account and your comments will be automatically published in the feed. Can't login? You can still post comments, but they won't publish until we have a chance to manually moderate them.

Coverage will begin with the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday, November 12 at 4:15 pm (Eastern Australia) / 12:15 am US Eastern / 5:15 am GMT
