BGCI organises congresses to enable botanic gardens to share experiences and information in plant conservation. The Proceedings of past congresses are made available to the public on our website. BGCI articles relating to past congresses, stored in our Journal Archives, are displayed on the right hand side of this page.
The most recent Global Botanic Gardens Congress is at Dunedin Botanic Gardens, New Zealand in 2013. The most recent Botanic Gardens Education Congress was held in 2015 in Missouri Botanical Garden, USA.
The next Global Botanic Gardens Congress will take place in Geneva, June 24th - 28th 2017. Find out more here.
