The global extinction of species continues unabated. Science has long been warning about the consequences of the loss of biodiversity on our planet; in recent years, specifically researchers who provide expert reports for the IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services).

For their comittment and efforts, Dr. Eszter Kelemen (Hungary), Dr. Yunne-Jai Shin (France) and Prof. Dr. Josef Settele (Germany) have received the EuroNatur award on 14th October 2021 on behalf of all the researchers working for the IPBES.

In his laudatory speech, EuroNatur President Thomas Potthast highlighted the importance of the work of the laureates: "Your work as scientists for and within IPBES enables policy makers to better understand the complex mechanisms and more effectively address the ongoingloss of biodiversity and habitat destruction."
