In October 2019 the Environmental Peacebuilding Association will host the First International Conference on Environmental Peacebuilding at the University of California Irvine. The conference will bring together academics, practitioners, and decisionmakers to examine the links between environment, conflict, and peace.
Themes will likely include: natural resource management in conflict prevention, environmental peacemaking, natural resource management and post-conflict peacebuilding, and gender and environmental peacebuilding, among others. Two special themes for this conference are technology and innovation in environmental peacebuilding and an emphasis on Colombia. In addition to traditional panels and paper presentations, participants will have the opportunity to participate in training, celebrate leaders in the field of environmental peacebuilding, and engage with others working on environmental peacebuilding.
Further information on the conference will be posted here as it becomes available.
