The IUCN Leaders Forum is an annual event, gathering leaders and changemakers from around the world, in-person, to discuss innovative solutions to critical global challenges, make bold commitments, build partnerships and catalyse action for impactful change in nature conservation and sustainability. It will:
1. Convene influential and innovative leaders (government, private sector, civil society, sub-national authorities, other) with the aim of creating alliances and new partnerships, identifying innovative solutions, and advancing the international policy agenda;
2. Offer a platform to discuss emerging issues and help shape future market forces with key stakeholders, in a safe space;
3. Create a networking opportunity between corporates and changemakers who are implementing environmental action projects and can report back on their progress at the next annual Leaders Forum.
