Thank you for a successful launch of World Biodiversity Summit!

This year, the inaugural World Biodiversity Summit was successfully launched in three parts. The first two parts took place digitally during Climate Week NYC and on the sidelines of the initial COP15 negotiations in Kunming, China.

 

The Summit culminated in its third part on November 10 as an in-person and digital event in Glasgow, UK on the sidelines of COP26.

With an aim to bridge biodiversity and climate, the full day-event in Glasgow gathered stakeholders across public and private sectors from across the globe to set the world on a path to achieve the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity.

The Summit highlighted bold leadership and investments, built cross-sectoral partnerships and developed initiatives for the conservation and regeneration of the world’s ecosystems.

World Biodiversity Summit serves as a springboard in our long-term goal of creating an ongoing actionable network for cross-sectoral commitments, raising ambition and action towards biodiversity restoration as a bridge to climate change solutions.

We look forward to continuing the work of bridging biodiversity and climate. World Biodiversity Summit returns on September 22-23, 2022 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
