Registration open for the 2016 Nairobi Conference on Earth System Governance

Registration for the 2016 Nairobi Conference on Earth System Governance is now open. Register here before 31 July to benefit from the early-bird registration fee.

The 2016 Nairobi Conference on Earth System Governance – the seventh in our conference series – will take place in Nairobi, the ‘Green City in the Sun’, 7-9 December 2016.

The 2016 Earth System Governance conference with the overarching theme “Confronting Complexity and Inequality” will be a lively forum for joint discussions on the conference themes, and a platform to exchange new insights and ideas that underlie earth system governance and global sustainability today.

The conference is organized by the Earth System Governance Project in collaboration with co-hosting institutions and supporting organizations and will be held at the University of Nairobi’s Upper Kabete Campus. The local host of the conference is the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies.

The 2016 Nairobi Conference will follow the successful and well-established conference format of previous Earth System Governance conferences. This format has proven effective in exchanging new research findings and insights, in building a truly global community of researchers, in particularly including early career researchers, in facilitating meaningful interaction between research and policy making, and in fostering the emergence of new ideas for earth system governance research and new policy options for governance of sustainable development. In addition, some new elements will be added to increase the embedding of the conference in the local and regional academic and policy landscape.

All participants – including speakers and co-organizers – need to register.

More information about the registration process as well as frequently updated information on accommodation and transportation is available at the conference website. A preliminary programme will be made available soon.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Nairobi!
