Mountain biodiversity Day


The Alpine Convention and French Presidency of EUSALP invite to an interactive online event on the topic of mountain biodiversity: "Mountain biodiversity Day - One voice to protect mountainsm Wildlife and People in times of global change".

The one-day event (9 am - 5:30 pm CET) offers a platform for discussions between experts and representatives from mountain regions all over the world, working in the field of biodiversity, with a strong focus on mountains. The main goal is to share experiences, identify shared challenges and showcase best-practice examples and solutions from various regional perspectives. As an outcome of the event, a Joint message on the importance of protecting global mountain biodiversity will be developed to be then taken forward to major global events such as the IUCN World Conservation Congress and the COP15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The event is jointly coordinated by the Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC), the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention and the Secretariat of the Carpathian Convention as well as the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
