Launched in 2015, the GSCC aims to both support and challenge botanic gardens to work outside their garden walls to collect, bank and conserve seeds of threatened species towards target 8 of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation. There are currently over 180 institutions involved in the GSCC working to conserve threatened plant species. In order to celebrate success, the GSCC will award gardens that excel at seed banking, while encouraging other gardens to get involved.
