“What kind of world would we want to hand on to our children? What research do we need to reach it?”
In the context of the International Year for Biodiversity and under the Belgian EU presidency, the EPBRS, the Belgian Biodiversity Platform and the Belgian Science Policy Office are initiating a challenging project on ‘Positive Visions for Biodiversity’.
A large meeting will develop inspirational, positive, achievable and shared visions for our future and the Nature we want. It will develop a storyline to show how to reach those alternative futures, and to achieve the targets on the way. The results of the discussions will be debated by EPBRS delegates and scientists to suggest a long-term science policy to enable society to move towards these positive visions, and outline options for other policies.
The scenarios and positive visions constructed at this meeting will be of global importance. They will be widely publicised and made available to European and International policy processes. The science policy options will be available to funding agencies to guide their research strategies.
