The IUCN UK Peatland Programme provides a valuable convening function.
Our series of conferences bring together people from across sectors and disciplines in one place to make connections old and new, sharing experience and knowledge.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the 10th IUCN UK Peatland Programme Conference will not take place in Aberystwyth, Wales on the 6 -8th of October 2020 as planned. Details of an alternative virtual event will be available here as soon as possible.
