Welcome to a conference filled with activities to raise awareness of the knowledge of our times on environmental and climate issues!

It will be a place for science and society/stakeholders to virtually meet, discuss and exchange expertise on common issues regarding Biodiversity and Ecosystem services, Climate change and Land, Ocean and Cryosphere in a changing climate - taking the IPBES and IPCC reports as point of departure. During the two days, we will take part in focused seminars and workshops, meet new contacts, mingle and exchange project ideas and results, as well as attending plenary presentations from researchers engaged in the work behind the reports. 

The aim of the conference is to mobilize how science can connect and strengthen synergies between the intergovernmental panels' coming reports, and to find common solutions and ways forward between science and society to the largest challenges of our time. 

The conference is organised by the Centre for Climate and Environmental Research (CEC) at Lund University, together with its in-house organisations including two of the university´s Strategic Research Areas (BECC and MERGE), its graduate schools (ClimBEco and Bioeconomy), the LU-wide Sustainability Forum, and the LU-wide collaboration initiative LU Land. HutSkåne is co-organizing one event.
