Willkommen! Welcome!

ESP is happy to announce that our 10th world conference will take place in Hannover, Germany from 21-25 October, 2019. It was in Germany that we first started our ESP conferences in 2008. Hence, we decided to celebrate our 10th world conference anniversary in Germany.

10 years advancing ecosystem services science, policy and practice for a sustainable future

The ESP10 conference locations are the Leibniz University for the opening day on Monday, and the Hannover Congress Centre for the rest of the conference.
