Our Coastal Futures – FEC Open Science Conference
19-22 October 2020 | Gold Coast, Australia
Transitioning towards a respectful custodianship of our oceans and coasts
Oceans and coasts are changing. We’re listening to those changes. Complex challenges take a diverse community to hear, understand and act.
We are very excited to invite you to Our Coastal Futures – the next Future Earth Coasts Open Science Conference, which will take place 19-22 October 2020 (with provisions for workshops until October 24) at Southern Cross University, Gold Coast, Australia. The conference is organized around interdisciplinary themes and seeks contributions from sciences, arts and humanities, policy and governance and has a strong emphasis on the contribution of Indigenous Knowledge.
