Information on the new dates of the Congress
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the safety of participants and visitors, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the French government have decided to postpone the IUCN World Conservation Congress 2020. Previously scheduled for 11 to 19 June 2020, it will now take place from 7 to 15 January 2021 in Marseille.
The French government and IUCN remain fully committed to making the World Conservation Congress a major event for nature conservation and the development of a new global framework for biodiversity.
We will provide more information on preparation, programme, logistics and more on this page as it becomes available.
