Join us for the World Biodiversity Forum 2020, taking place the 23 – 28 February in Davos, and explore the future of biodiversity.
The inaugural 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. The themes of the conference include Changing Biodiversity, Values and Concepts, Future of Biodiversity and Making an Impact.We welcome contributions that
Proposed sessions should cut across disciplines, cover a diversity of perspectives and visions and address current topics in novel ways. We accept proposals for thematic sessions and interactive workshops.
Deadline for submissions is the 21 July 2019.
We look forward to receiving your contributions!Cornelia Krug
