7th Global Botanic Garden Congress Date Changed
TopicServices for Botanic Gardens
Due to the global impacts of COVID-19, we are moving 7GBGC to the Australian spring. Join us in Melbourne, 27 September to 1 October 2021, the perfect time to visit Victoria.
Influence and Action: Botanic Gardens as Agents of Change will explore how botanic gardens can play a greater role in shaping our future. With the accelerated loss of biodiversity across the globe, increased urbanisation, population growth and climate change, our need to work together to find new solutions for the future has never been greater.
Hosted in the glorious city of Melbourne, Australia, the 7th Global Botanic Gardens Congress (7GBGC) will run from 27 September – 1 October 2021.
Explore Australia’s most liveable city and Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria’s stunning and contrasting landmark gardens at Melbourne and Cranbourne. Together we will celebrate Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria 175th anniversary at this important international gathering.
Join inspiring speakers, fascinating workshops, panel discussions, and symposia, in addition to a specially curated evening cultural program focusing closely on Australian aboriginal culture and the vibrant contemporary creative and food scenes for which Melbourne is globally renowned.
With a focus on influencing the future, for the first time in the history of the Congress, 7GBGC will deliver a Youth Program for future Gardens’ leaders aged 18-24 – young people actively involved in horticulture, ecology, environmental and conservation science, and land management.
