EXPLORING THE FUTURE OF BIODIVERSITY
First of its kind, the World Biodiversity Forum will bring together leading researchers, early career researchers, practitioners, representatives from different sectors, decision-makers and societal actors to have a conversation on the kind of future we want (and/or do not want) for biodiversity.
The Forum will provide a platform for exchange, covering a wide range of perspectives, and capturing a diversity of visions. With this, it aims to redefine and set the agenda for biodiversity as a focal point over the next 10 years in current themes and topics across sectors.
In this, the Forum supports the “New Deal for Nature” to be forged by the Convention on Biological Diversity at the end of 2020. It is aligned with Sustainable Development Goals and achievement of which will require the involvement of all sectors/societal actors, societal consensus and collective search for solutions to conserve biodiversity.
The World Biodiversity Forum is conceived as a platform for exchange, covering a wide range of perspectives, and capturing a diversity of visions. We are pleased to announce 30 thematic sessions that set the scene for innovative and timely questions, and bring together researchers and practitioners from a variety of disciplines. Workshops offer the opportunity to discuss current topics in more detail and for in-depth interactions with other Forum participants. Lunchtime events and debates complete the programme.
