2018 Utrecht Conference on Earth System Governance
November 05, 2018 - November 08, 2018
The 2018 Utrecht Conference stands in a long tradition of global conferences on earth system governance, from Amsterdam (2007 and 2009) to Colorado (2011), Lund (2012), Tokyo (2013), Norwich (2014), Canberra (2015), Nairobi (2016), and Lund (2017). In this long-standing event series, the Utrecht Conference will have a special status: in 2018, the Earth System Governance Project’s current Science and Implementation Plan will be replaced by a new 10-year science plan; and new, enthusiastic leadership will take over the helm of the project. This conference will hence focus on harvesting the many findings of the community over the last decade, combined with a bold outlook to the future and the next scientific challenges for earth system governance research.
