28 – 29 October 2020

At the GLF Conference 2020, thousands of  biodiversity experts, scientists, policy makers and priveate from across the globe will gather online.

As the COVID-19 pandemic puts systems on pause right now across the Earth, it’s the perfect moment to explore how to ‘build back better’: to transform our food systems and plot a future with long-term planetary health and human well-being at the fore. Held under the theme ‘One World – One Health’, this two-day event will spotlight ecosystem restoration and contribute to the UN CBD’s Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, making 2020 the super year for nature and biodiversity.

As part of the conference, the Global Nature Fund will contribute a session on the experiences of the Project "Biodiversity in Standards and Labels for the Food Industry".
