Submit a Session or Poster to the NCSE 2019 Annual Conference, January 8-9

The National Council for Science and the Environment is now accepting proposals for sessions and posters for the 2019 Annual Conference, January 8-9, 2019 in Washington, D.C. This is an opportunity to share your research and experiences with colleagues who are actively working in the fields of sustainability, resilience, and education.
NCSE seeks sessions and posters that reinforce this year’s conference theme of Sustainable Infrastructure & Resilience. Our planet is facing challenges such as extreme weather, growing urbanization, and resource scarcity. Cities and ecosystems are more vulnerable than ever, triggering an urgent call for a sustainable, healthy, and just world. More recently, the concept of resilience has become integrated into our thinking. This year’s conference will explore the challenges and opportunities emerging at the intersection of natural, built, cyber, and social infrastructure as well as best practices. We will also look at community resilience and discuss how to apply best practices to all communities.
Submission Deadline: August 3, 2019 at 11:59 pm ET.
