Sustainable Solutions to Global Environmental Change

On 8-9 April 2013 the British Ecological Society (BES) and the York Environmental Sustainability Institute (YESI) will be hosting a major international scientific meeting, Global Change and Biosphere Interactions , as part of our centenary and celebrating the launch of YESI.

Focused on sustainable solutions to global environmental change, the conference will feature major international speakers covering current advances in our understanding of the past, present and future consequences of human impacts on the earth system. Contributions will reach across disciplines, spanning physical, natural, social sciences and humanities to address the causes and consequences of global change and the implications for policy. There will be extensive opportunities for discussing the role of interdisciplinary research in understanding the impacts of global change and identifying new research which will allow us to mitigate and adapt to these impacts.

Early bird registration is now open until 15 February 2013 at £95 for non BES members and £75 for members, which includes all sessions, lunch and refreshments over the two days.
