This year, the symposium will convene leaders from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Indigenous territories to explore the state of progress toward national and international large landscape conservation goals, such as the America the Beautiful strategy (aka 30×30) and Canada’s Pathway to Target One. In particular, conversations will focus on transboundary partnerships, the role of Indigenous nations, and best practices to achieve 30×30 at the continental scale. Together, we will look at science and data, policies, and case studies to support the benefits of transboundary work for biodiversity, climate, and human resilience.

The Thriving Cities Challenge final pitch fest will also take place as part of the symposium.

Please note: In order to ensure the health and safety of all participants, this event will be held in a hybrid format with opportunities for both in-person and virtual participation.
