Working Together for the World's Plants
BGCI represents the world's greatest force for the protection of plant diversity.
We work in three key areas, with the aim of securing plant diversity for the well-being of people and the planet:
Our vision is "A world in which plant diversity is valued, secure and supporting all life" and to create this world our mission is: "To mobilise botanic gardens and engage partners in securing plant diversity for the well-being of people and the planet". This work is underpinned by a set of values that guide everything we do.
Plants for Life: Medicinal Plants Under Threat
BGCI has published the findings of a year-long investigation into the state of medicinal plants around the world.
The Role of Botanic Gardens in Plant Conservation
Botanic gardens play a key role in the conservation of the world's plant diversity and the education of people in environmental issues. BGCI facilitates this work through delivering publications, workshops, congresses, support and guidance. Together we are making plants, and thus life, more secure.
