The World Leaders’ Conservation Forum (WLCF) 2018 is a global platform, established during the 2012 International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress, which aims to search for nature-based solutions to sustainable development and harmonious co-existence of all forms of life on Earth.
Co-hosted by the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Korea, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province and IUCN, the Forum will bring together stakeholders from around the world under the central theme of working ‘Together for a Sustainable Future.’ Government, civil society and private sector experts will discuss key conservation and sustainability issues that require urgent attention. Sessions will address, inter alia: the need for cooperation and harmonization for the sustainable use of natural resources; the role of conservation as a peace keeping and building instrument across national boundaries; and the need to empower future generations in an effort to achieve a more sustainable planet.
