Eighth International Conference on Sustainability Science (ICSS 2022)

The 8th International Conference on Sustainability Science (ICSS 2022) is going to be held online from 18 January - 20 January, 2022. The conference aims at 'Biodiversity as a source of solutions to sustainability challenges in urban, peri-urban and rural areas'. 

The  Conference will facilitate creative discussions between academics, policy-makers and practitioners on how biodiversity-based solutions can contribute to sustainable development. As such the outcomes of the conference are expected to feed into the current international discourse of the post-2020 agenda on biodiversity.

The ICSS conference is co-organized by the Institute of Future Initiatives and Tokyo College at the University of Tokyo, International Union of Biological Sciences, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, Stockholm Resilience Centre at the Stockholm University, Future Earth, Convention on Biological Diversity Secretariat, and Kunming Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The conference is the continuation of the 5th Forum for Biodiversity and the Eighth International Conference on Sustainability Science held in April 2021.

IUBS Centenary Webinar Series: Third Lecture: “Gombe and Beyond”

The International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) was established in 1919 as a non- governmental and non-profit organization comprising of National Academies and international scientific Associations and Societies. Since then IUBS is functioning as a global platform of scientists from all disciplines and nationalities for cooperation, interaction and collaboration to promote research, training, and education in biological sciences.

To commemorate completion of 100 years of promoting excellence in biological sciences, IUBS has launched a Webinar Series bringing the best of all disciplines to discuss evolution, taxonomy, ecology, biodiversity, and other topics that represent unified biology and the topics of prime importance to address contemporary problems such as climate change, endangered species, food and nutrition, health etc.

The third lecture in the IUBS Webinar Series will be delivered by Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, on 27th April 2021, at 1:30 pm GMT.  The title of the webinar is: “Gombe and Beyond”. An ethologist and environmentalist, with ongoing research spanning more than six decades, Dr. Goodall is a pioneer in studying the behavior, social organization, and cognitive abilities of chimpanzees. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace.

The second lecture of the Webinar Series was delivered on 10th March 2021 by Sean B. Carroll, an award-winning biologist, educator, film producer, author and science communicator on “The Serengeti Rules: The Regulation and Restoration of Biodiversity".

The first lecture of the webinar series was delivered by Rattan Lal, 2020 World Food Prize Laureate on “Forgetting How to Tend the Soil” on 2nd October 2020.
