European Ecosystem Services conference: Helping nature to help us

This conference will be the biggest European event in 2016 that links science, policy and practice on ecosystem services and natural capital. With our strong focus on practice and implementation we will showcase excellent knowledge and research, share working examples from business, land management, policy and local practice. Your input into this event is essential to make it a success!

We offer you an attractive and dynamic programme to accommodate for our focus on practice implementation. This will include a networking day for researchers, policymakers and practitioners, field trips to example projects, as well as a science day to present the latest tools and developments in research.

We now welcome proposals for conference sessions. This is your chance to help shape the programme by demonstrating your work, organising a side-event, or running a scientific session. Full guidelines for submitting your proposals are on the conference website: www.esconference2016.eu . The proposal deadline is 1 February 2016. The programme committee will perform a selection to incorporate relevant proposals into the final conference programme.

Do not miss this opportunity! We look forward to your great ideas.
