Scottish Biodiversity Strategy Stakeholder Event

Find out what biodiversity training courses, conferences and events are coming up and how to get involved.

The 4th Annual Biodiversity Strategy Stakeholders' event: Biodiversity 2020 - the final push!


The 4th Annual Biodiversity Stakeholder Event took place on 22 May 2019 at the Battleby Conference Centre, with the focus of the event being what we can all do collectively over the next 18 months to make sure more Aichi targets are on track.

The event included a mixture of presentations on the challenges and opportunities and our progress so far in delivering the Aichi targets and ones specifically looking at drivers of change. This helped set the scene for the World Café session where participants were encouraged to write a pledge of action

Pete Cairns, Director of SCOTLAND: the Big Picture delivered the keynote address with a stunning visual and inspirational presentation; A Rewilding Journey.
