ESP Europe conference

Monday, 18 November 2024 - 0:00 to Friday, 22 November 2024 - 23:45 (Europe/Brussels)

In 2024, ESP hosts its 5th European conference under the theme Ecosystem Services: One Planet, One Health. The theme refers to the question of how the ecosystem services concept can address the challenges involved in delivering the global vision of One Health. It highlights the interdependence of human health, animal and plant health, ecosystem health, and the health of the global environment.

The theme aligns with international commitments under the Global Biodiversity Framework and is at the heart of the sustainable development goals. These goals can only be achieved in a healthy and fair economic system that takes the full value of nature`s contributions to human wellbeing into account.

The conference will take place on 18-22 November 2024 in Wageningen, the Netherlands. The 5th ESP Europe conference will be an in-person conference to provide an enriching experience that allows attendees to fully immerse themselves in the conference, interact with speakers and engage with other participants in real-time. However, we will explore options to livestream the plenary sessions and possibly other virtual program elements.

The conference will also make a dedicated effort towards empowering young voices. We are committed to enabling high-impact participation of early career researchers. The program will be completed by pre-conference trainings, a conference dinner, and field trips showcasing local landscapes. Registration will open in summer.

The call for sessions is now open and will close on 10 April. Visit the session submission page to submit your session proposal.
