IUCN World Conservation Congress 2020


Held every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress is the world’s largest conservation event. The next conference takes place June 11-19, 2020 in Marseille, France.

The event is jointly organized by the French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and brings together leaders from government, civil society, Indigenous peoples’ organizations, business, and academia to determine the world’s most pressing environmental and development challenges, and actions to address them.
