6th Global Botanic Gardens Congress

June 26, 2017

With the aim of stimulating discussion and innovative reflections on the role and relevance of botanic gardens in society, Botanic Gardens Conservation International and the Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of the City of Geneva would like to cordially invite you to the 6th Global Botanic Gardens Congress from 26 to 30 June 2017.

The scientific programme will focus on botanic gardens’ role in solving the major environmental challenges for society – food security, water scarcity, energy, health, loss of biodiversity and climate change. Major topics will include plant conservation, education and outreach, botanic garden management challenges and communicating the big issues via landscaping, with workshops and discussion sessions organised during the course of the meeting to address specific issues. We hope that the botanic garden community, its associated horticultural experts, scientists, educators, communicators,  directors and managers will have the chance to collectively and collaboratively explore and develop different visions of botanic gardens and their core activities for the future.
