ICCB-ECCB 2015 – France
In an historic move, the Europe Section hosted the annual International Congress for Conservation Biology by combining ECCB with the global SCB conference on the Mediterranean coast. We expected that the normal high standard of talks and accompanying events would attract a typical ICCB audience from around the world whilst European delegates benefitted from special events with a regional focus. In line with the conference theme, “Mission biodiversity: choosing new paths for conservation”, we organised a novel mix of interactive components to facilitate collaborations between conservationists that may not ordinarily cross paths.
ECCB 2012 - Scotland, UK
The third European Congress of Conservation Biology was held in Glasgow, Scotland (UK) in 2012 with the theme of “Conservation on the Edge” to reflect Scotland’s position on the Atlantic seaboard of Europe. The meeting had a strong policy emphasis including a ‘policy note’ exhibition and the production of the 3rd ECCB Policy Statement which can be read here.
