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. We will welcome more than 700 delegates from all over the world.

The conference program will include a variety of activities. Seven keynote speakers will reflect on the conference theme from different perspectives and more than fifty break-out sessions will take place. Delegates can additionally register for pre-conference trainings, a conference dinner and field trips.

On Thursday a Business day is organised to encourage dialogue between business representatives and researchers to stimulate the application of the ecosystem services concept in business operations.

G6a session survey

The G6a session aims to share and discuss experiences on teaching the ES concept, so higher effectiveness is achieved in the Ecosystem Services Teaching and Learning processes. To do so, the session hosts propose to develop evaluation methods of the teaching success related to ES concept. To facilitate this aim, the session hosts have developed an on-line survey to be held prior to the session.

We kindly would like to invite you to fill out the G6a session survey. This survey will facilitate the session exercise on evaluation methods of the teaching success related to ES concept.

We would like to let you know that we have added new options for field trips. You can swap or add a field trip to your registration by using the link you received from the registration confirmation email. You can see the field trips overview here.
