Co-organising and co-facilitating a full day program in the Rio Pavillion during the 14th Conference of the Parties to the CBD (The Convention on Biological Diversity). This full day side-event included presentations of the expert group’s work including our new framework for scenario development and then three rounds of 90 min workshops on the urban, rural and marine context. In each workshop I introduced the exercise of developing scenarios linked to one particular value framework - and facilitated one of the group’s work. The day ended with a concluding plenary, in which I took part, exploring the potential value of the work of the expert group for the work on a new strategic plan for the CBD. The whole event was well-documented in the Earth Negotiations Bulletin and thus distributed to a big audience, see
In addition I contributed to panels in two other side-events during the COP, one focused on transformative scenarios and the other one on governance.
