From November 17th to the 29th, Sharm El-Sheikh will host the United Nations Convention on Biological diversity (https://www.cbd.int/conferences/2018), where stakeholders from more than 190 will join efforts in order to protect global biodiversity.
Synthetic Biology will be one of the key items of the agenda as well as the Cartagena and the Nagoya protocols, two crucial international agreements that strive for the safe and fair use of genetic resources.
After iGEM is preparing to participate in this event and we are looking for iGEMers to talk about synthetic biology, how it can be used to protect biodiversity and to share their iGEM experience.
