After the September 1st registration deadline, the conference program team set to create the schedule for this year’s conference, taking place October 20-24th. Today, we are glad to release five days of programming, both online and offline.
Browse the panels and innovative session themes to explore the state of earth system governance research in 2022, and important topics responding to the conference theme “Governing accelerated transitions: Justice, creativity, and power in a transforming world.”
In order to explore the full program, we advise you to log in to your ConfTool account. This is the same portal through which you submitted abstracts and innovative session proposals. By logging in, the system will highlight the panels that you are involved in, and you can create a custom schedule. Zoom links to online sessions, and room assignments for on-site sessions will also be available for registered participants via the platform at a later date.
The program team has made its best effort to accommodate time zones, special requests, and the reallocation of papers while maintaining theme-relevant panels. Please keep in mind that it will be difficult to facilitate further requests for changes, due to the dense schedule of 130 sessions, often across time zones.
We are very much so looking forward to convening the Earth System Governance community of scholars in Toronto and online between the 20th-24th October. Over 60 participants are signed up for the early career events, which include hiking, a living library, and a special breakfast. We are especially excited for the Keynote Speaker Tzeporah Berman, titled “Oil Politics in a World on Fire.” The conference dinner is confirmed at a very special location in Toronto, with some of the best, and most sustainable catering in the city. This year’s conference will provide many wonderful opportunities to connect informally with old and new colleagues and friends.
