World Congress LogoThe Congress Organising Team is delighted to share the logo for the One World, Many Voices: Science and Community World Congress in Hiroshima 2018. Our wonderful graphic designer Victor Guzman has managed to coordinate colours associated with the Japanese flag alongside a logo that perfectly depicts the collaboration between the ICA, IFA and ISA. Another step forward in our plans, and with just over a year to go to the congress itself, we're all getting very excited to hold our first shared congress in Asia... we hope you are too! #owmv2018
