Thanks to the amounts of the full registration fees, it is possible to enable early career environmentalists to participate at a more affordable rate.
Additionally, we have announced a sponsorship package to partly subsidise the participation fees of early career environmentalists. Information will be sent to registrants in the Equity member category registrants if we find a sponsor for this package.
* Equity fee: this includes bachelor's, master's and doctoral students. Also, young environmental enthusiasts who are up to 30 years old (incl.).
** Online participation: This includes a live broadcast of all plenary lectures. Whole programme in one parallel session will be available to online participants. There will not be a live broadcast from all parallel sessions.
*** Ukrainian equity category: We would like to encourage presentations on contemporary topics on Ukraine, such as the environment, effects of the war, opportunities for restoration. Therefore, accepted abstract authors on the aforementioned topics as well as Ukrainian participants are enabled an equity registration fee of 200€ to provide a forum for discussing these essential matters. PS! You need to show your passport at the registration desk on-site.
