What's your vision on European conservation science, policy and education? Join us to make it happen!

Le Corum Conference Centre, Room Antigone 1: starting at 18.30

What can SCB-Europe do for you and what can YOU do for conservation science and practice in Europe

This event is for everyone aiming to increase the impact of their work and strengthen conservation science and practice in Europe.

We will start with a brief presentation of the outstanding achievements of SCB Europe Section in the last 3 years, which include producing highly influential papers and policy briefs, lobbying for conservation of important places in Europe, supporting students and early-career professionals through funding and training, communicating scientific findings to decision makers to promote evidence-based environmental decisions.

This brief introduction will summarise existing and potential new opportunities that the section offers to SCB members in Europe, which include professional training and networking, science/policy engagement, awards and support for research and conservation. 

After setting the scene, the floor will be yours: a facilitated group technique will help to share your ideas and visions, requests and contributions towards SCB and the Europe Section in order to build capacity and foster diversity within the European conservation community.

Come along if you:

- Have innovative ideas in the science-education-practice-policy interface in Europe waiting to be launched,
- Are looking for a professional environment for conservation science in Europe to help you realize your ideas,
- Want to express your views on how SCB-ES should look like in 2 to 10 years,
- Are a conservation student or professional searching for support in your career in conservation science,
- Just want to know more about the Europe Section and see if it fits in your perspective regarding European conservation.
