One Week Left for Proposals for the 20th Annual Hawaii Conservation Conference

The 2012 Hawaii Conservation Conference will be taking place from July 31st to August 2nd at the Hawaii Convention Center.  This is the 20th annual conference and this years theme is “What Difference does 20 Years Make? Reflections on Change, Innovation, and the Work that Remains”.

The HCC organizing committee is soliciting proposals for sessions, forums, workshops, trainings and individual oral or poster presentations in the following four tracks. Specific session topics are suggested for each track; however, we also welcome other related conservation topics.  The deadline for proposals ends at the end of this month on January 31st.

2012 marks the 20th anniversary of the annual Hawai‘i Conservation Conference (HCC) and 20 years since the Rio Earth Summit. The 20th annual conference is an opportunity to reflect on the past two decades of island conservation in Hawai‘i and wider Pacific Islands. Activities will include a presentation of a “20th Anniversary HCC Video” reflecting on the successes and memories of the Hawai‘i Conservation Alliance (formerly the Secretariat for Conservation Biology); daily thought provoking keynote speakers; a special banner to memorialize our collective genealogy; public art event; training opportunities; and more.
