2020 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference
The Salish Sea: Shared Knowledge for the Future
April 19-22, 2020 at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver, BC
The Call for Sessions has closed and notification emails were sent on August 23.
The Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference brings together scientists, researchers, decision-makers, managers and knowledge-holders from First Nations and Tribes, agencies, community organizations, businesses, non-governmental organizations, and academia. Participants present the latest scientific research on the state of the ecosystem, share information about the application of knowledge from science and other sources, and guide future actions for protecting and restoring the Salish Sea Ecosystem.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Shared Knowledge for the Future.” An important aim of this conference is to work toward strategies for recovery and management that integrate across cultures, disciplines, and boundaries, and bring knowledge to action.
To this end, the conference conveners are calling for session proposals from the Salish Sea community. Sessions are groups of presentations that are organized around a unified topic. Each session is scheduled for 1½ hours and includes a collection of presentations.
Given the multi-sector nature of the conference, and in consideration of the issues we face, proposals that are applicable and engaging to the wide range of participants are encouraged.
Deadline for Submission was: July 12, 2019
