  • Welcome to the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre!

This is the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre

From slime moulds to whale sharks and tiny molecules to tropical ecosystems, our Earth is home to a fascinating array of life that is collectively known as biodiversity. It is vast and exciting, yet disappearing rapidly, so we need to act now to explore and understand its intricacies.

To reach these goals, the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre aims to link science and society around biodiversity and enhance and accelerate biodiversity research through four pillars: exploration, education, research and preservation.

The GGBC has a global outlook, extending well beyond the borders of its home base in Sweden. It is a collaborative effort amongst thirteen partner institutions and hosted at Gothenburg University in Gothenburg, Sweden. The centre and its partners bring together scientists and the public to create a greater understanding and appreciation for the natural world around us.
