Vasna Ramasar, the conference's scientific chair and LUCSUS researcher explains:

- The vision for this year’s conference is two-fold: on the scientific side, we want to use this as a key moment for the Earth System Governance community to reflect on the last decade and look to the future of the Earth System Governance project. We have a lot of exciting opportunities for engagement on what we have done, where we are coming from, and where we are heading. This is reflected in a number of harvesting initiatives and task force gatherings that will take place at the conference as well as roundtables and innovative sessions.

- We will also host an Early Career Researcher workshop and for the first time, a teaching workshop on “Innovative Methods for Teaching Earth System Governance.

A range of delegates from academia, policy-making and activism are presenting at the conference, including keynote speakers, Monika Griefahn, a former member of the German parliament and co-founder of Greenpeace Germany and Erik Olin Wright.

Stefan Mikaelsson, a Sami elder and former President of the Sami Parliament will also contribute to the discussions with his experience.

In addition to the main programme, don’t miss out on the opportunities of the Early Career Researcher Workshop and the Earth System Governance Teaching Workshop.

The full programme is now available online with a mix of plenaries, semi-plenaries, innovative sessions, paper presentations and social events.

The Lund Conference on Earth System Governance is hosted by Lund University and jointly organised by the Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS), Department of Political Science and the Earth System Governance Project. The conference coincides with celebrations of the 350th Anniversary of Lund University which will add extra festivity to the event.
