IUCN World Conservation Congress 2016
1 Sep 2016 - 10 Sep 2016
The Congress aims to improve how we manage our natural environment for human, social and economic development, but this cannot be achieved by conservationists alone. The IUCN Congress is the place to put aside differences and work together to create good environmental governance, engaging all parts of society to share both the responsibilities and the benefits of conservation.
The Congress is the place where IUCNís more than 1,300 Member organisations exercise their rights, influence the global conservation agenda and guide IUCNís work plan for the four years to follow.
The next Congress will take place 1-10 September in theHawaiʻi Convention Center, in the Hawaiian capital, Honolulu. It is being hosted by the State of Hawaiʻi with the support of the Department of State of the USA.
