We bring the relevant people together and ask the questions that matter to broaden the dialogue, unlock the potential of ideas and generate solutions.

New work programme gathers momentum

The institute’s strategy 2017-2022 was developed with close partners and we are currently building our work programme. 

We provide the expertise and conditions for the best people from different backgrounds and disciplines to engage in the co-production of ideas and action. Working together, we can tackle the most pressing environmental challenges we face today. 

Our work is carried out through four workstreams:

  • Thought leadership to provide new ways of thinking about how conservation is designed and implemented
  • Incubation to translate emerging ideas into practical action
  • Insight to challenge existing approaches, and
  • Rapid-response dialogues to help our partners respond to contentious issues in a scientifically robust way.

Through these we address issues of different scale, scope and level of urgency.


I see enormous potential in harnessing and organising the conversation around biodiversity and translating it into action. There is much we can learn from the climate change community but we also need to innovate from within.
