EcoSummit 2016 – Ecological Sustainability: Engineering Change

29.08.2016 - 01.09.2016


The 5th International EcoSummit Congress, EcoSummit 2016 – Ecological Sustainability: Engineering Change, will take place at The Corum Convention Centre, Montpellier from August 29th to September 1st 2016. It will focus on the ecology of terrestrial ecosystems and all habitats that are integrated within those ecosystems, including river networks, wetlands and coastlines. Special attention will be given to fragile ecosystems that are more likely to suffer the consequences of climate change and anthropogenic pressure.

In the current context of an increasing world population, changes in social habit (increasing world consumerism) and climate change, it is evident that agriculture is being intensified but with a growing awareness of the need to preserve and use sustainably world resources. Therefore, the Summit will also address how terrestrial restoration can be carried out when the massive demand for food results in fragile ecosystems, forests and marginal lands being turned over to agriculture. Some of the central and fundamental topics of EcoSummit 2016 are for example biodiversity and biological conservation, ecosystem creation and restoration, and integrating socio-economics and ecology.

The EcoSummit conference series was founded in 1996 in Copenhagen, as a forum to meet the demands of scientists working in several new ecological disciplines, and who required a better understanding of the concepts and methods for a holistic use of ecology in environmental management. Since 1996, EcoSummit has been taken around the world (Canada and China), with EcoSummit 2012 hosting 1600 participants from 75 countries in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
