The ESP9 world conference will be organised in Shenzhen, China from 11-15 December 2017. China has a rapidly expanding community of scientists publishing innovative ecosystem services work in international journals, and a growing number of policy-makers and practitioners. This conference aims to bring both the national and international ecosystem services community together to achieve a more sustainable and eco-friendly society.

The program will contain a broad range of topics on the latest state-of-the-art on the science, policy and practice of ecosystem services. Conference keynotes will highlight diverse aspect of the overarching theme. Sessions will largely be determined by the participants and provide ample space for the many ESP Working Groups, National Networks and service teams to get together and bring the science, policy and practice further. We welcome you to participate!

The call for abstracts is now open. Extended deadline is 31 August 2017
