The central importance of the sustainable use and protection of biodiversity for the further development of human well-being is increasingly recognised. However, implementation remains difficult and the erosion of biodiversity and natural capital continues to progress, as the global IPBES Report 2019 and the Dasgupta Review 2021 have made clear.
High expectations are therefore linked to the “post-2020 global biodiversity framework” which will be adopted at the COP 15 in Kunming in May 2022. On a European level, conservation and restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity are key issues of the ambitious “Green Deal”. However, are these high expectations justified or do we need to be more ambitious?
To discuss and elucidate these questions, the BMBF Research Initiative for the Conservation of Biodiversity (Forschungsinitiative zum Erhalt der Artenvielfalt, FEdA) invites you to save the date for the transdisciplinary digital conference “Biodiversity and Human Well-Being – Europe’s Role in Shaping Our Future” from June 22–24, 2022.
The conference invites European scientists from all disciplines related to biodiversity as well as stakeholders from politics, society, economy and the media.
