Four laureates, one in each country, have been selected for their multidisciplinary approaches to nature and biodiversity conservation, and will go to Marseille to attend the IUCN Congress.

A webinar conference will take place on May, 27th to give you the opportunity to meet the laureates and ask them all the questions you have about their work.

Helena Tukiainen from Finland, Justine Ramage from Sweden, Julie Strand from Denmark, and Annabel Mempel from Norway will discuss the dynamics of geodiversity and biodiversity, the impact of climate change on the landscapes and the people, the safeguard of genetics, and the connections between nature conservation and international cooperation.
