I’m so excited to be speaking at IMPACT7 this year! IMPACT7 is a one-day showcase of the latest wave of Australian research making a huge impact on our globe. From addressing gaps in existing medical technology to transforming our waste into new energy sources to uncovering the mysteries of space; presenters will offer solutions to some of the future’s greatest challenges.
I will be giving a three-minute flash lightning presentation on the global impacts of the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems, covering everything from its uptake into policy to the specific ecosystems that have been protected or restored thanks to their Red List status. It’s hard to condense into three minutes all the great stuff our global network has achieved over the last ten years, but it’s all worth it. I’m also working on a sister manuscript highlighting our Red List impacts. So keep your eyes peeled out for that too!
Presented in partnership with CSIRO and IP Australia, IMPACT7 2018 will be held on Thursday 9 August 2018 at The Carson Conference Centre, AMNF, 535 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. Earlybird rates close this Friday 13 July.
