Welcome to the website for BGCI’s 8th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens. Here you will find everything you need for registering and participating in this exciting congress.
BGCI’s 8th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens will takes place this year in Mexico City and will be hosted by UNAM Botanic Garden, a world renowned institute of excellence in plant conservation, education and ethnobotany.
This is the first time BGCI’s education congress will have been held in Latin America and we look forward to welcoming colleagues from the Americas as well as from other parts of the world. The congress will provide a vibrant forum for botanic garden educators as well as for educators and staff from plant science institutes, education and conservation organizations, zoos, museums, national parks and nature reserves.
The main focus of the congress is Education and the GSPC. We will examine how gardens can address all 16 targets of the GSPC through education. We will also agree on a common set of messages for plant conservation.
If you are concerned about communicating the importance of plants and engaging people in action for plant conservation, please join us at what promises to be a stimulating.
