Please REGISTER by the 26th January. Joining instructions (Microsoft Teams link) will be sent to you the day before the event.
Our environment is changing at unprecedented speeds and scales and we are rapidly losing the biodiversity, ecosystems, and natural resources that we depend upon. The Environment and Sustainability Theme spans multiple disciplines that address the critical challenges we face in this space, with research and policy focused on understanding, monitoring, predicting and managing the environment and its sustainability.
