Save the date: European Conference on Ecological Restoration 2020

Published on:

The 12th European Conference on Ecological Restoration SERE2020 will take place in Alicante (Spain) between August 31 and September 4, 2020. Participants can look forward to discussing challenges facing ecological restoration in post-2020 Europe.

A New Green Deal For Europe’s Nature

Ecological restoration is increasingly present in our lives. The UN Declaration of 2021-2030 as the Decade of Ecological Restoration clearly responds to social concerns and shows ecological restoration as an opportunity to fight major environmental problems. Yet, international high-level initiatives should scale down and translate into concrete actions.

What are the challenges facing ecological restoration? And how can ecological restoration promote the recovery of damaged, degraded and destroyed socio-ecological systems in these critical times? Between 31st August and 4th September 2020, the 12th European Conference on Ecological Restoration SERE2020 will be a great opportunity to discuss these questions.

2020 should be the turning point to develop an ambitious transversal European strategy for ecological restoration that will help member states meeting the ambitious targets agreed in Aichi.

Science and political action towards socio-ecological restoration

In parallel, the conference also aims to explore the profound changes in European societies, linked to the search for new ways to understand growth and re-define human role in the Biosphere.

Europeans look astonished at the magnitude of the global damage and hesitate on how to establish a healthier relation between culture and nature.

The early-bird registration will begin on January 27, and will be open until 3rd June 2020.
