The Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences will organize its fourth Theme Day on Monday 4 December 2023. The goal of this conference is to allow young researchers under the age of 40, who are active in global South countries, to meet each other, whatever their specialization, but also to let them know the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences and its activities (www.kaowarsom.be). Abstracts may be submitted in English, French or Dutch, but preferably in English. Participation is free of charge but registration is compulsory.
The topic of the 2023 Theme Day is “Green transition and biodiversity”. The green transition refers to a systemic shift towards more resilient ecosystems and equitable economies, building on the principles of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of United Nations Agenda 2030. To continue preserving the necessary biodiversity, we must in particular protect, restore and promote sustainable use of ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and stop biodiversity loss (SDG 15) and promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all (SDG 8).
