The University of Georgia’s Center for Integrative Conservation in Athens is debuting a conference this fall (September 20-23, 2018) focused on integrative/interdisciplinary conservation science.
The conference will bring together academics, practitioners, researchers, resource managers, and students to address current and emerging conservation challenges. By bridging diverse perspectives across disciplines and sectors, participants will explore challenges and benefits of synthesizing methods, frameworks, and conceptual approaches within social and ecological sciences.
Topics will include key issues associated with simultaneously preserving ecosystem integrity while addressing human needs and increasing adaptive capacity in a constantly changing world. By embracing the complexity inherent in human-environmental systems, the Integrative Conservation Conference will create space for the process of constructive engagement across disciplines and between research and practice, resulting in new insight for conservation.
