Astronomy for Planet Earth: forging a sustainable future
News: We are open for contributions (both talks and poster presentations). Please submit your abstract via the conference abstract submission form as soon as possible.Aims and scope
Astronomy provides society with a unique perspective of both our place in the Universe and the fragility of our planet. In the face of increasing global temperatures and environmental degradation there is a pressing need for astronomers to realise the role that they can play in communicating the uniqueness of planet Earth and ensuring a sustainable future.
In addition, we are organising a lunch session on Friday, 2 July that aims to reach the wider astronomical community with a number of high-profile talks.
Leo Burtscher (co-chair), Hannah Dalgleish (co-chair), Tobias Beuchert, Faustine Cantalloube, Victoria Grinberg, Natasha Hurley-Walker, Mathieu Isidro, Knud Jahnke, Michelle Willebrands
