The final programme is ready for you to browse! With hundreds of sessions and events taking place across the Congress week, there is a diversity of sessions for you to choose from.

We recommend that you take some time to browse the programme before you arrive in Sydney, to get to know the sessions and events on offer.

The Congress Guide gives an overview of the week’s programme, and a map of the site. You’ll be provided with an A3 printed version of the guide when you register onsite.

The Online Programme can be browsed day-by-day, topic-by-topic or searched for specific people or events. Use the online programme to create your own personalised schedule to take with you to the Congress on your computer or in print form.

The IUCN World Parks Congress App will be available soon. For those with mobile devices, you’ll be able to download our customised app and carry an up-to-date digital programme with you at the Congress. The app functions offline, so it won’t use up your data onsite, and you can use the onsite free wifi to check for updates.

Onsite, we’ll help you to navigate the programme by having digital signage showing you what sessions are on that day, a business centre with lots of computers where you can browse the programme and print your personalised schedule, and a My Schedule Helpdesk for those who need assistance in using the online programme. If you get lost, please ask one of our friendly volunteers for help – many of them will have tablets with the Congress App so they can help you find your next session.

Please note that the Congress is a green event and as such a full printed programme will not be issued.
