Early Career Day | Biodiversity and Society: Brainstorming on Challenges and Ways Forward
We invite early career researchers* to our early career day and workshop on 23 February 2019. The workshop provides an opportunity to
1) discuss your vision of current and future challenges in the context of Global Change;
2) come up with concrete targets and strategies to cope with the current biodiversity crisis and its environmental, social and economic outcomes;
3) engage in networking and learn about career opportunities (such as journal clubs, reviewing IPBES and IPCC, etc.)
At the end of the day, we want to make the participants’ ideas heard in a panel discussion to the rest of the conference.
