For over 60 years, Dr Luc Hoffmann helped catalyse new ideas and effective approaches to nature conservation, bestowing the institute with a strong lineage based on partnership and the arts of convening, connecting and incubating.
Today, the Luc Hoffmann Institute follows the principles of systems thinking, convening and co-creation to incubate and accelerate new ideas and approaches that will deliver significant gains for biodiversity. Successful specialist incubators are also thought leaders. The Luc Hoffmann Institute prides itself on cutting-edge thinking: we understand that the debate around biodiversity and its conservation/future needs to evolve to create the conditions for change. We create space to (re)define key issues and questions and set them up in a way that allows society to engage with them. We draw on our extensive experience to facilitate complex conversations by convening a wide range of stakeholders on innovative topics. This helps us to accelerate the innovation agenda, identify promising new approaches and solutions and convert them into concrete action. Convening in this way also allows us to generate the high-quality networks that are essential to launch effective, high-impact ideas.
