Invitation for session themes
The overarching theme to the 2021 symposium: Partnering for land, sea and coast, has been chosen to recognise the significance of partnering to effectively manage the natural and cultural values of islands, sea and coastal areas.
In particular, it seeks to highlight the leading role of Traditional Owners in island, sea and coastal management. Only through the joint efforts and shared understanding can the environmental, cultural, social, and economic values of islands be protected.
We are seeking proposals for session themes that explore the challenges and pathways to forging successful partnerships to managing island systems, and how the resilience of island systems can be enhanced in a changing world.
Enquiries and proposals can be sent to the Organising Committee via email @ islandarks
