The current biodiversity crisis have led to a call for transformative change globally and in Europe - a change in how we interact with Nature that reduces pressure on biodiversity and secure Natures’ Benefits to People. This challenges how we perform conservation science, and calls for science-based practices that put humans and nature on a track that takes us out of the current crisis.
Practitioners, consultants, politicians, conservation and scientists and students are welcomed to discuss and to design new guidelines, tools and strategies in order to meet new challenges in times of biodiversity crisis.
The scientific program will features contributed talks, poster, and speed presentations as well as dozens of workshops and short courses.
