IUCN World Conservation Congress

11- 19 June, Marseille, France
IUCN Congress 2020

Held once every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.

The Congress aims to improve how we manage our natural environment for human, social and economic development, but this cannot be achieved by conservationists alone. The IUCN Congress is the place to put aside differences and work together to create good environmental governance, engaging all parts of society to share both the responsibilities and the benefits of conservation.

Update: France will host the IUCN World Conservation Congress 2020 from 11 to 19 June at Parc Chanot in Marseille.
