TERRAenVISION Environmental Issues Today: Scientific Solutions for Societal Issues
Our Planet suffers from human activities. As scientists, we know more and more about our
environment, about processes, rates of change, new threats and risks. However, the
challenges seem to grow quicker than the solutions we can create.
This conference aims to focus on the scientific research towards finding solutions for the
societal issues of our time. TERRAenVISION promotes interdisciplinary collaboration and
networking. To bring scientists and stakeholders that have the same goal, work on the same
societal issue, but have different scientific backgrounds. By bringing the people and
their knowledge together, we may be able to take the steps towards solutions that can
bring our society to a more sustainable situation. In this conference, we want to link to
International policies such as the sustainable Development Goals, the UN Climate
conventions, CAP and COP.
Environmental issues we would like to highlight and discuss:
This conference is framed around themes. Each theme is kicked off by two plenary keynote
speeches of 20 min, followed by a discussion. After the plenary session, a range of
different parallel sessions will be organised.
We also want to stress that the conference is not only for scientists, but also warmly
would like to invite people from outside the scientific world.
