14 Years of Cross-Sector Collaboration

World Biodiversity Summit brings together leading voices from across the global biodiversity arena. In order to develop a programme that is as impactful as possible, we aim to ensure that the full spectrum of stakeholders are represented at our events – from business and finance to governments, policymakers, international organisations, as well as civil society, Indigenous representatives, and youth.  

The speakers for World Biodiversity Summit 2023 will be announced prior to the event. Until then, you can explore our previous line-up of speakers.
