NCSE 2020 Annual Conference
Event Description

The NCSE 2020 Annual Conference engages more than 800 leaders from the sciences, education, government, policy, business, and civil society to foster a dialogue across these sectors on environmental policy- and decision-making with the use of science. The Annual Conference program includes presentations by leading experts and sessions that spotlights new research, innovation, and the power of collaboration through partnering. Attendees will join meaningful conversations, network with peers, and make vital connections.

NCSE will mark its 30th year as an organization in 2020 by mirroring the theme of our inaugural conference, Science in Environmental Decision-Making. In today’s world, where environmental challenges have grown more complex, the risks greater, and the stakes higher, the role of science in environmental decision-making remains as essential as ever. 

NCSE 2020 will explore the various ways that science serves and contributes to the decision-making process, highlighting cases in which science has helped improve environmental decisions, as well as examples in which a lack of science has compromised the efficacy of decisions and policies. The Annual Conference will bring together scientists, decision-makers, industry leaders, and subject-matter experts to effectively bridge the cultures of science and policymaking toward a more resilient and sustainable future and societal well-being.
