The IUCN World Conservation Congress has grown to be the world’s largest and most democratic recurring conservation event in the world, bringing the expertise and influence of its powerful membership to bear on the most pressing issues of the time. The 2021 edition is scheduled in Marseilles, from September 3rd to September 11th. The Congress’ Forum is the largest knowledge marketplace for conservation and sustainable development science, practice and innovation. It is open to the public and a great place to learn, share, network and influence.
In this context, ALPARC and EUSALP Action Group 7 will be presenting an onsite & livestreamed session, titled: “Connecting protected areas and beyond to safeguard mountainous ecosystem services and adapt to climate change - An intergenerational dialogue” on September 7th.
This session will bring forward a constructive dialogue between young professionals and senior conservation experts, sharing viewpoints on how nature conservation issues should be best addressed regarding the current challenges like climate change and biodiversity loss.
