Our Planet suffers from human activities. Agriculture, cities, nature and industries all need to transition to address the challenges related to climate, biodiversity and resource availability. More and more scientific and practical evidence arises that shows that nature-inclusive and nature-based solutions allow mankind to live within the planetary boundaries. Despite the evidence, NBS are still not the first choice when looking for transformative solutions for agriculture, nature, cities and industry.
To create the enabling conditions for the transition towards a society that stays within the planetary boundaries, it is needed that scientists, policy makers, financial institutes and industry join forces.
This conference aims to provide a platform for a broad range of stakeholders that together can exchange experiences and identify new transformational pathways towards a sustainable society within the planetary boundaries.TERRAVISION promotes the exchange of scientific research, solutions from industry and insights from policy for interdisciplinary collaboration and networking. To facilitate the dialogue between scientists and stakeholders with the same goal, work on the same societal issue but with different backgrounds. By bringing the people and their knowledge together, we may be able to take the steps towards solutions that can bring our society to a more sustainable situation. In this conference, we want to link to International policies such as the Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Climate conventions, the Green Deal, COP and CAP.
This conference is framed around themes which are connected to the big transitions of our time. Each theme is kicked off by two plenary keynote speeches of 20 min, followed by a discussion. After the plenary session, various parallel sessions will be organised.
We want to stress that this conference is not only for scientists, but also for those people from outside the scientific world working on transitions towards climate mitigation and adaptation, sustainable cities and agriculture and a circular economy with a focus on the sustainable use and management of the natural system.
