Your Conference Experience

GCSE’s Virtual Conference Begins Tuesday!

The Global Council for Science and the Environment (GCSE) 2022 Annual Conference begins this Tuesday! This year’s virtual conference honors the legacy of Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, who’s seminal work on biodiversity, conservation science, and climate change inspired this year’s theme. Working with our virtual conference vendor (iCohere), GCSE has curated more than 40 presentations, thought-provoking plenary panels, and keynote armchair discussions. This year GCSE honors three giants of conservation science and biodiversity with the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Awards on June 22 and on June 24 Sir Partha Dasgupta will deliver the John H. Chafee Memorial Lecture on the economics of biodiversity to name just a few esteemed speakers. 



This Monday, June 20, you will receive login information via email from our technical conference provider called iCohere. The link will give you immediate access to the conference platform and includes a brief video detailing how to navigate the virtual platform so you can make the most of your GCSE 2022 conference experience.
