Call for proposals are now open for the 2020 ACTS Conference, hosted by the University of Tasmania, 18–20 November 2020.
There is no denying it. We are in the midst of a climate crisis, which is accelerating faster than most scientists anticipated. As greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise and disrupt the planet’s natural systems, the climate is changing at unprecedented rates and we are experiencing the impacts firsthand; extreme temperatures, longer drought, intensifying bushfires, dying coral reefs and much more. This is the reality of anthropogenic climate change and the future we will pass on to generations to come.
The 2020 ACTS Conference: Climate Action Now will provide the opportunity for practitioners, students and cross-sector partners working in all areas of sustainability to foster collaborative learning and exchange ideas on climate action and sustainable development. Working together, we can strengthen our contributions towards real and meaningful solutions for a better world.
The ACTS Conference Committee is now inviting proposal submissions for sessions from an academic, operational and student perspective on the conference theme.
Submissions close 26 May 2020
