Symposium Themes & Program

In 2023 we will explore how the outputs and outcomes of research by our partners and the TERN science community can or do influence:

  • Land management for sustainable ecosystem services
  • Evidence-based environmental decisions
  • Net and positive carbon
  • Biodiversity stewardship
  • Technology for conservation, AI, ML and associated data challenges
  • Environmental scenarios, forecasts and predictions

in any of these areas: agriculture, forestry, mining, public health, tourism, services and consulting, natural hazard risk, renewable energy… 

Presentations that highlight the contribution of Indigenous knowledge would be particularly welcome.
