EcoSummit 2020
Building a sustainable and desirable future:
Adapting to a changing land and sea-scape
21 - 25 June 2020
Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

The 6th International EcoSummit Congress - EcoSummit 2020 – Building a sustainable and desirable future: Adapting to a changing land and sea-scape, will take place at The Gold Coast Convention Centre, Gold Coast, Australia, from 21st – 25th June 2020.

EcoSummit 2020 will have a focus on coastal and marine ecosystems including adjacent terrestrial ecosystems and all habitats that are integrated within those ecosystems, including river networks, wetlands and catchments. We expect all aspects of environmental modelling, engineering, science, and policy to be covered under the focus of climate adaptation and the need for developing socio-economic and environmental resilience and sustainable prosperity around the world.  Further focus will be placed on fragile systems that are more likely to suffer the consequences of climate change and anthropogenic pressure such as islands, coastal communities and arid landscapes.

In the current context of an increasing world population, in particular in coastal regions, it is evident that building sustainable cities and using resources sustainably is inevitable. It is envisaged that the Summit will produce a declaration encompassing its vision and policy recommendations.

The topics covered in EcoSummit 2020 will include, but are not limited to:

    Coastal development and engineering
    Coral reef stressors
    Coastal conservation
    Fisheries and aquacultures
    Coastal marine habitats
