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.

Organization of Fifth Science Policy Forum for Biodiversity

The joint fifth Science-Policy Forum for Biodiversity and the eighth International Conference on Sustainability Science (ICSS 8) will include five virtual sessions to be held on 13, 14, 19, 21 and 23 April 2021. The sessions will last up to 120 minutes, starting at 6 am (Montreal Time). The event is financially supported by University of Tokyo and IUBS.

The objective of this Science-Policy dialogue would aim to provide space for scientists, policy makers and other relevant stakeholders to discuss and make recommendations on how science, technology and innovation could contribute to the effective implementation of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework in order to bend the curve of biodiversity loss and obtain positive biodiversity outcomes and foster transformative change towards achieving the 2050 Vision.
