6th World Conference on Ecological Restoration
August 23, 2015 - August 27, 2015
Towards Resilient Ecosystems: Restoring the Urban, the Rural and the Wild
As the scale and acceleration of climate change become apparent, Global Warming is arguably viewed now as the key driver for the ‘carousel of 21st Century Challenges’. Both as a means of understanding the future causes of environmental degradation, and in providing opportunities for remediation, ecological restoration is among the most important activities available to us. How we apply ecological restoration is a matter of adaptation and survival that will define our resilience.
SER2015 will take the concepts, the tangible manifestations and the practical applications of resilience as the main theme to explore the cutting-edge developments in and impacts of restoration ecology.
The programme will focus on four key strands – science, culture, arts and education – providing an integrated whole view of the ecological challenges we face.
