IUCN World Conservation Congress


France will host the IUCN World Conservation Congress 2020  from 3 to 11 September 2021 in Marseille. The event, which originally was planned to be held in June 2020, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

.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.
