Hundreds of events related to the variety of the natural patrimony have been organized all over the region, starting with guided trips and itineraries to discover the territory and its species, informational discussions, meeting and round tables and continuing with workshops, exhibits, contests and voluntary experiences. The Xarxa de Custodia del Territori has chosen again iWith.org’s services and advice to create the web page of the event, providing every participant the tools to publish their news and events.

The attraction of the Biodiversity week was the Photo Competition organized by the Departament de Medi Ambient i Habitatge where spectacular images have been presented to the public. "Planaria" (the photo in the right) by Olga Torne and "Marietes fent feina amb pugons" (Ladybugs working with aphids) by Marc Sendra have been honored with prizes.
