We invite you to Quebec City for the 9th World Conference on Ecological Restoration from 19 – 24 June 2020. This conference is being jointly hosted by the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), the Canadian Land Reclamation Association (CLRA), and Université Laval and will also serve as CLRA’s National Conference!
The conference theme for SER2021 is “Reclaim, Restore, Rewild (RE3).” The RE3 theme reflects the diversity of land management options and the restorative continuum. The need to foster communication among groups that may see their goals as separate is more important than ever as we launch the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. SER2021 will provide a dynamic platform to bring together members of the restoration, reclamation, and rewilding community to discuss the many ways we can approach the process of reversing ecosystem degradation at the regional, national, and international levels. The SER2021 program will feature world-renowned keynote and plenary speakers, numerous symposia, trainings and workshops, and field trips.
We are excited to bring together colleagues from around the world in the amazing setting of Québec City to discuss and debate the opportunities, issues, and challenges involved in addressing a range of restorative actions around the world. The conference is expected to draw more than 1,000 international delegates, both virtually and in person, that embody the professional and cultural diversity of experts in the scientific, technical, and socio-economic dimensions of restoring damaged and degraded ecosystems,
We recognize that there is no timeline, anywhere, for when large events will be safe again or when people will feel ready to participate in-person at a conference. Given this ongoing uncertainty, we have committed to making SER2021 CLRA Québec RE3 Conference into a hybrid (virtual and in-person) event that prioritizes connection and engagement; these changes will have the added benefit of making participation in SER2021 CLRA Québec RE3 Conference more flexible and accessible than ever before.
Save the date: June 19 – 24, 2021!
