Checking the pulse of the planet’s biodiversity
Open Science Conference & All Hands Meeting 2016
GEO BON will held its First Open Science Conference & All Hands Meeting in July of 2016 in the beautiful city of Leipzig, Germany. The GEO BON network’s conference will convene hundreds of the world’s leading biodiversity monitoring experts for a full week of plenaries, workshops, and presentations. GEO BON’s member organizations, partners from national biodiversity observation networks, working groups and other conservation focused institutions will come together to discuss global biodiversity challenges, share innovations, collaborate on new initiatives, and shape the future in terms of biodiversity monitoring.
The first two days of the conference will kick off with plenaries and sessions tackling broad global biodiversity monitoring, providing the context and setting the stage for the next three days.
Beginning on the third day, participants will have the opportunity to discuss and plan how to support the strategic plan of GEO BON for the coming years in focused breakout sessions.
This first GEO BON conference will be a great opportunity to connect with people that share your passion and curiosity for biodiversity, learn how you can get involved in efforts to track biodiverse change, and meet the scientist that have their fingers on the pulse of biodiversity.
