The Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, the Conservatoires botaniques nationaux network, the Conservatoire botanique national du Bassin parisien and PLANTA EUROPA are delighted to announce that the 9th PLANTA EUROPA Conference will be hosted from May 11th to 15th 2020, at the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris-FRANCE.

Since the famous “Our house is burning and we’re looking the other way” heard at the fourth Earth Summit in Johannesburg (2002), there was already overwhelming evidence of the 6th mass extinction of life on Earth, and impacts of global warming have since then become undeniable. Despite evidence that the situation is related to human activities, the headlong rush continues. Every effort must be geared to ensuring that we shift towards a civilization where human and nature coexist more respectfully.

Both the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation and its regional response at the European level have been focusing on an integrative scheme to face the many threats weighing on wild plants and habitats. Recognized and supported by international bodies (the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Council of Europe, amongst others), these Agendas have enabled to deliver key contributions to the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the Aichi Targets.
