Imagine a future where people understand and treasure their place as part of a complex ecosystem. A world where the focus is no longer on dramatic losses and catastrophic scenarios, but the extraordinary natural wealth that still surrounds us today. That future is achievable.
Positive Visions for Biodiversity is a unique opportunity to shape our strategy for realizing the future that we want and need. During the first two days, over 250 participants will engage in a live brainstorm to create an ambitious, aspirational vision for the future of biodiversity conservation. The vision will trace a credible pathway through the next critical years of biodiversity work—and establish achievable targets for policy and research that will inspire us to get there.
As the International Year of Biodiversity comes to a close, we face not only a critical responsibility, but also an historic opportunity to shape an ambitious future for biodiversity science and research and ultimately, our planet. Will you be there for the journey?
