The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew today releases ‘Our Manifesto for Change 2021-2030’, a new strategy mapping out its mission and areas of focus for the next decade. The world leading plant science institute pledges to intensify efforts to understand and protect plants and fungi, for the well-being of people and the future of all life on Earth.
The institution’s ultimate goal is step up to help to end the extinction crisis and contribute to creating a world where nature is protected, valued by all and managed sustainably. In the wake of a global pandemic, and with the future of the planet in peril, the strategy represents a public commitment by RBG Kew to do everything in its power to reverse the environmental devastation of biodiversity loss and climate change.
To deliver this mission, Our manifesto for change 2021-2030 centres around five key priorities for the coming decade. These commitments are based on how RBG Kew believes it can best deploy its expertise and other assets, including Wakehurst, its wild botanic garden in Sussex, to make a distinctive and substantial contribution to solving these global challenges.
