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 600 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 additionaly 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.
