Reef Resilience Symposium 2024

    Registrations to open soon

    Start 15 April 2024, 9:00am
    End 18 April 2024, 7:00pm

    As the world races to slow global heating by reducing carbon emissions, coral reefs around the world are already struggling to cope with the rate of environmental change. Ignoring their decline is not an option. How can we best support the resilience of these ecosystems, and the communities that depend on them, in the coming decades?

    This Symposium will enable reef stewards of all kinds – practitioners, managers, researchers, engineers, Traditional Owners, industry leaders – to share and discuss recent events, new knowledge and innovations, and how we might work more effectively to meet current and future challenges.

    The program of ~120 speakers is currently being finalised. The Symposium will open for registration soon. For those unable to attend in-person, the event will be livestreamed globally, with options for virtual participation via a free app.

    This is a FREE event made possible by generous organisers and funding from the Australian Government.
