The Natural Capital Project invites you to join the 2017 Natural Capital Symposium at Stanford University from March 20-23, 2017. Featuring keynote speakers Carter Roberts, President and CEO of World Wildlife Fund, and Mark Tercek, President and CEO of The Nature Conservancy, this event is a major convening of leaders advancing the science and practice of incorporating nature’s diverse values into decisions. Interactive sessions throughout the symposium will focus on five central themes: sustainable development planning, securing freshwater, fostering resilient coastal communities, developing sustainable cities, and creating standards for the private sector.
ESP connects over 3000 ecosystem services scientists, policy makers and practitioners who work together in more than 40 Working Groups and a growing number of National Networks on all continents. ESP regularly organises World and Regional conferences and provides many Services to further enhance the application of ecosystem services for nature conservation, ecosystem restoration and sustainable management. Partner up with ESP and join in the global effort for the future of our Natural Capital!
The European Ecosystem Services conference would like to leave a legacy and create a statement of intent regarding ecosystem services. To that purpose, we will draft the Antwerp Declaration, which will be presented and discussed during the conference. The declaration will outline a clear message from the participants about ecosystem services that is relevant to the wider world. Your expert views on ecosystem services are highly appreciated. Please proceed to the Antwerp Declaration Questionnaire and share your thoughts with us in just 5 minutes.
Thank you in advance!
