PhD Symposium 2021

A New Era of Environmental Science, Management, Research and Industry
Learning, Sharing and Developing During Environmental and Pandemic Crises

This year’s Symposium explores the challenges and opportunities of working within this current era of global environmental and social challenges. How do we as researchers, practitioners, and policymakers move forward when there is so much uncertainty? What innovative steps can we adopt and implement to mobilize change? Join us as we discuss and explore these and other thought-provoking questions. This event is open to anyone curious and interested in joining the conversation.

The symposium will include inspirational Introductions by our keynote speaker Jonas Spring, followed by two breakout sessions for participants to choose from.

Breakout Session #1 Explores Conversations around Navigating Barriers in Research while Breakout Session #2 Discusses Opportunities, Adaptations and Innovations in a time of crisis.

Finally, a closing Panel Discussion highlights an array of strategies and efforts made by professionals, academics, and activists, exploring Diverging Perspectives, Insights and Responses Regarding Environmental & Pandemic Crises.
