Biodiversity, Conservation Science, and Climate Change

Web Image 1.png

The GCSE 2022 Annual Conference will explore the complex interactions between biodiversity and climate change, and how these complexities factor into conservation strategies to protect global biodiversity.

GCSE 2022 will highlight success stories in conservation that should help guide us toward finding more general science- and evidence-based solutions to conservation challenges.

The conference will address the fact that conservation strategies are also inherently socio-political, and their success depends upon forging partnerships with Indigenous peoples and local communities most impacted by biodiversity and its loss.  Equally important, GCSE 2022 will address the North-South divide in priorities for conserving biodiversity while simultaneously addressing global climate change, set both in the short-term context of the COVID pandemic and in longer time-frames - the next decade and beyond.

We invite you to celebrate conservation science, ecology, and biodiversity as a presenter, supporter, or participant at GCSE 2022.
