A Rocha at the World Conservation Congress

The congress

From 3 to 11 September, the World Congress of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) will be held at the Parc Chanot in Marseille. This congress of international importance aims to advance nature conservation policies throughout the world. It usually meets every four years but this congress was postponed last year because of the pandemic. The previous congress, in Hawaii in 2016, brought together more than 10,000 participants, including a delegation from A Rocha.

A Rocha is once again actively participating in the congress. A Rocha is a member of IUCN and will be participating in the debates and votes. In addition, we will have two stands in the Congress Exhibition Hall (see below).A Rocha will be involved in the congress in two ways, through the congress itself (the “IN” congress) and in events around the congress (the “OFF” congress).
