ICCB Plenary Speakers
The ICCB Scientific Committee is evaluating nominations for plenary speakers and will announce the speaker lineup in February. ICCB plenary talks relate to the theme of the congress. Speakers inspire the conservation community to confront shared challenges and illuminate new ideas and possibilities for biodiversity conservation with thought-provoking insights for new pathways in conservation.
Special consideration is given to speakers who focus on solutions to conservation challenges in Africa, use inter-disciplinary approaches to address cutting-edge questions in conservation science, and are uniquely positioned to address social and racial justice in conservation and the persistence of bias and inequity in the conservation profession. ICCB prioritizes speakers who historically face systemic barriers to participation on account of race, gender or sexual orientation.
