The Closure of the 2010 International Year for Biodiversity event aims to establish a more practical communication for businesses, consumers and local actors about the vital nature and value of biodiversity to society. This is about familiarizing European citizens about the sustainable use and socio-economic value of biodiversity and making concrete proposals for the European Commission, and launch a new initiative.

In October, Belgium will preside over European negotiations at the COP10-CBD in Nagoya. So this is a year for all issues, and in particular for the European Union and Belgium, the EU President during the second half of 2010. This closing conference will be based on results from sources such as the TEEB study, the Gand conference of September 2010, in particular the discussions held during the workshop on ‘Valuation of ecosystem services’ at the European level, and from the COP10-CBD. This event will translate the commitments made at Nagoya into a more concrete and pragmatic form, for businesses, consumers, and stakeholders, and foremost for the importance and value of biodiversity for society. Its main message is that biodiversity means much more than just nature conservation. It offers multiple services that are free but essential to everyone’s survival. Therefore, the idea is to pin down and detail some specific actions for the future European strategy. This event will also be an occasion for the launch of a new initiative to succeed Countdown2010. The target audience will be the business sector, consumers, and national stakeholders.
