Taking the Congress theme "Parks, people, planet: inspiring solutions", the opening plenary session will bring together leaders from all walks of life including the international community, governments, business, civil society, indigenous peoples and youth to debate the central question: Why do protected areas matter? Picking up where the Durban World Parks Congress left a decade ago, the opening plenary will take stock of global trends and challenges faced by our planet and the seven billion people living on it. This will be an opportunity to celebrate, debate, and be inspired by the potential of protected areas to provide inspiring solutions for some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
