The Greifswald Mire Centre (GMC) is pleased to inform you that the registration (https://hopin.com/events/rrr2021) for the virtual conference "Renewable Resources from Wet and Rewetted Peatlands – RRR2021" (www.rrr2021.com), organised by the partner in the Greifswald Mire Centre, is now open. The RRR2021 takes place from 9th - 11th March 2021 and will allow you to share and widen your knowledge about paludiculture worldwide. Register now at participation fees of 60 EUR (regular) or 30 EUR (reduced).
You can expect passionate keynote speakers in plenary sessions at the beginning of conference day 1 and 2. Altogether more than 100 scientific oral and poster presentations are divided over 21 parallel sessions. The session on "Finance options for livelihoods from wet peatlands" is co-organised with FAO, UNEP, IUCN and WWF. Since excursions cannot take place, eight inspiring virtual paludiculture excursions will be presented. The workshops, literature evening, and an art session are some other highlights in the programme. Several booths in the virtual exhibition hall expose wetland-related products, techniques, and services. The virtual platform provides the best networking opportunities with scientist, practitioners, pioneers, and other experts from all over the world.
The Greifswald Mire Centre, the host institution of the RRR2021 conference, is the interface between science, policy and practice in all peatland related questions – locally and globally. It unites some 70 peatland experts in one place. Partners in the Greifswald Mire Centre are the University of Greifwald, the Succow Foundation and DUENE e.V. The Greifswald Mire Centre offers science-based solutions for social challenges related to peatlands such as climate protection, biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.
