New7Wonders of Nature New7Wonders of the World

Bernard Weber: “2013 set to be another wonderful year”

Bernard Weber, Founder-President New7Wonders

Dear Supporters and Friends of New7Wonders

As we come to the end of 2012, I recall with pride and excitement the fantastic events that took place this year to honour and celebrate six of the seven New7Wonders of Nature. We have crossed the world from Asia, to South America, to Africa, to conduct the Official Inaugurations of Puerto Princesa Underground River, Ha Long Bay, Iguazu Falls, the Peruvian Amazon, Jeju Island and Table Mountain.

The New7Wonders of Nature Official Plaques, unveiled during these events, are now being carefully placed in special locations so that everyone — including the millions of voters — can take their photos and become part of the celebration every day.

I also was happy to see that everywhere we went we met passionate believers in the New7Wonders goal of building Global Memory. They are doing this concretely by continuously honouring what has been achieved, by promoting positive and sustainable tourism, by expanding economic and commercial opportunities intelligently (in partnership with the New7Wonders team and in line with our guidelines), and by supporting educational and environmental initiatives in the New7Wonders spirit. This is very much Global Memory creation in action.

And more is set to happen in 2013. More Official Inaugurations events are being planned; we are working on the next steps for the New7Wonders of Nature Congress and the soon-to-be announced location of the New7Wonders Global Network meeting bringing together the 14 wonders from 20 countries— our own “W20” group of countries. As well, the New7Wonders Cities campaign is gathering momentum, and some exciting things are set to happen in the digital and media world of New7Wonders.

Along with all this activity, I am glad to report that I have finally had time to start writing a long overdue book, chronicling my personal adventures and the magic New7Wonders journey so far, which I hope to publish in the coming year so you can get even more insight on how and why the New7Wonders movement, empowered by your participation, has become so successful.

So, once again, best wishes for 2013, another wonderful year!
