On 18-21 March 2019, the Natural Capital Project is hosting the 2019 Natural Capital Symposium at Stanford University in Stanford, USA.
Every year, leaders from around the world come together at the Natural Capital Symposium to drive innovation and empower decisions informed by nature’s benefits to people. The Symposium provides a unique opportunity for scientists, NGO’s, government decision-makers, private industry, and practitioners to converge and collaborate towards our shared goal of a more sustainable, livable planet.
With a focus on Sustainable Development and Sustainable, Livable Cities, the Natural Capital Symposium is designed to foster meaningful dialogue across sectors. The Symposium features interactive sessions, topical working groups, and inspiring keynote addresses. In 2018, more than 350 participants from 33 countries attended the event.
The 2019 Natural Capital Symposium is broadly organized around the theme of bringing natural capital information into action. Featured panel sessions will cover regional topics such as opportunities in India and Latin America, as well as pathways to impact through working with multilateral institutions. This year’s event will also feature several other sessions around shared outcomes such as livable cities, sustainable development, and resilience.
