Headed to the Biodiversity Revisited Symposium in Vienna

From September 10-13, IISAAK OLAM Foundation President and Co-Founder Eli Enns will at the Biodiversity Revisited Symposium in Vienna, Austria.

Biodiversity revisited is “a collaborative, thought leadership process to co-produce a new, integrated five-year research agenda to effectively sustain life on Earth.
