PECS 2015 conference a resounding success

PECS 2015 gathered 230 people from 23 countries, from within and beyond the PECS network, who shared cutting-edge research insights on social-ecological dynamics in the Anthropocene.

The conference engaged and involved multiple stakeholders concerned with sustainable development, interested in developing new solutions and strategies. The conference highlighted PECS achievements and ambitions, and synthesized and integrated PECS-related research which provided a basis for a future social-ecological research agenda, especially in light of Future Earth.

We'll be filling this space with videos of the keynote speakers and more great material from the conference.

For some great reflections on the conference, but also more generally on the challenges of being a young scholar in the field of social-ecological research, read this blog postexternal link by PECS researcher My Sellberg.

There is also a Storify summary of the conferenceexternal link, building on tweets made during PECS2015.
