World Conservation Congress in France

IUCN world conservation congress Marseille 2020

Held every four years, the IUCN Congress is the world's largest conservation event. It brings together leaders from government, civil society, indigenous peoples' organisations, business and academia to determine the world's most pressing environmental and development challenges, and actions to address them.

Offering both in-person and virtual participation, this inclusive event will enable broad engagement from around the world. Early bird rates for in-person participation end 3 June.

Whether in-person or remotely, this is a critical moment to be involved in the IUCN Congress. The event will drive global action needed to address biodiversity issues, and offer a unique platform for government, business, and civil society to collaborate for nature conservation. The outcomes from Congress will impact future meetings and decision-making bodies such as the UN Convention on Biological Diversity COP-15 in Kunming, China.
