Synopsis

IT Leaders 2021 / ‘ECO’:​
How can Information Systems support a global environmental conservation organisation?​

Information Systems have become critical tools for all companies today, especially through the COVID pandemic. For an International organisation with staff and stakeholders located across the planet, IS is in central focus to keep conservation tasks “alive” everywhere.​

Join us to hear our IT leader talk about typical ‘big issues’ for his work, his organisation, his world - and some of the challenges and opportunities for us too. ​

IUCN, Switzerland​
IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, helps the world find pragmatic solutions to our most pressing environment and development challenges. It supports scientific research, manages field projects all over the world and brings governments, non-government organisations, United Nations agencies, companies and local communities together to develop and implement policy, laws and best practice.
