Taking place on 3 September 2024 from 09:30–17:00, this conference is a space to discuss the state of temperate rainforests, knowledge gaps and research opportunities.
This conference is hosted by the Sustainable Earth Institute and will bring together academics and practitioners with a shared passion for temperate rainforests to deepen our collective understanding of this fragile ecosystem and its global significance. The conference aims to set new agendas in temperate rainforest research by supporting cross-sectoral engagement.
The morning will begin with talks on temperate rainforests which cover three broad themes: 
  1. Protecting temperate rainforests, and the indicators of their health
  2. Restoring and renewing temperate rainforests and opportunities for co-benefits
  3. Communicating and engaging with temperate rainforests.
Following this, we will introduce the SW Rainforest Alliance and discuss the first State of the SW Temperate Rainforest mapping and report. 
The day will close by discussing how we might bring local action together with global perspectives to better protect and restore this globally distributed ecosystem. 
Places are limited and booking will open on 22 July 2024 once our conference schedule is confirmed, so please save the date.
