This year’s Latsis Symposium on Scaling-Up Forest Restoration takes place at ETH Zürich, Switzerland.

The Latsis Symposium 2018 brings together leading scientists and practitioners to address the ecological, economic, and societal challenges for scaling-up forest restoration. The symposium is motivated by the challenge of delivering an effective global response to two major environmental threats, climate change and forest degradation through restoration.

The goal of the 2-day symposium is to work towards a conceptual understanding of the challenges and opportunities for scaling-up forest restoration efforts to meet Bonn Challenge targets. Presentations by experts from academia, non-governmental organisations, and the business sector will help to frame and inform discussions on forest restoration approaches.

Further information, including the list of speakers, is provided in the attached flyer. The detailed programme is available on our website.

Registration is free, but as places are limited we recommend early registration (final deadline 30 May 2018).
