Together On A Mission
Founder Terry Virgo
Owner Newfrontiers

Together On A Mission was an annual conference held at The Brighton Centre, Brighton, UK. [1] Organised by the Newfrontiers network of churches, the four day conference involves Christian teaching and worship.

It was aimed primarily at leaders, but welcomed students and people in their 20s. Each year, 5000 delegates from 50 nations attended the conference. [2]

It was announced that the 2011 would be the last year in which the conference would take place in its present form. [3] In the future, Newfrontiers will function less centrally, instead adopted a model of multiple 'spheres'. Other mission conferences will be held in other nations, in due course.

The Labour Party Conference is the annual conference of the British Labour Party. It is formally the supreme decision-making body of the party and is traditionally held in the final week of September, during the party conference season when the House of Commons is in recess, after each year's second Liberal Democrat Conference and before the Conservative Party Conference. The Labour Party Conference opens on a Sunday and finishes the following Wednesday, with an address by the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party; the Leader's address is usually on the Tuesday. In contrast to the Liberal Democrat Conference, where every party member attending its Conference, in person or Online, has the right to vote on party policy, under a one member, one vote system, or the Conservative Party Conference, which does not hold votes on party policy, at the Labour Party Conference, 50% of votes are allocated to affiliated organisations, and the other 50% to Constituency Labour Parties, but all voting in both categories is restricted to nominated representatives.

A BioBlitz, also written without capitals as bioblitz, is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists and volunteers conduct an intensive field study over a continuous time period. There is a public component to many BioBlitzes, with the goal of getting the public interested in biodiversity. To encourage more public participation, these BioBlitzes are often held in urban parks or nature reserves close to cities. Research into the best practices for a successful BioBlitz has found that collaboration with local natural history museums can improve public participation. As well, BioBlitzes have been shown to be a successful tool in teaching post-secondary students about biodiversity.
