Welcome to the Journey to Marseille!

Vital Sites: The Journey to Marseille

The Idea


Building up to the Protected Planet Pavilion at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille, France (January 2021), by showcasing protected and conserved areas as effective and positive for the people and the planet.

A Range of Online Activities


The journey will highlight stories, expert opinions, and case studies on the importance of protected and conserved areas, from around the world with a series of multimedia events and activities on our new digital platform.

Achieving the Promise of Sydney


It has been more than 5 years since the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 in Sydney, where commitments were made towards the health and well-being of the planet. The journey marks the 60th anniversary of WCPA and the run-up to the IUCN World Conservation Congress by tracking the world’s progress to these goals.
