E-Conference Series

EcoRes Forum E-Conference Series

The purpose of the EcoRes Forum E-Conference Series is to provide an easily accessible platform for moderated discussions among global stakeholders about the socio-cultural aspects of climate change. Conducted online, e-conferences encourage wide participation by circumventing the logistical hurdles of traditional conference formats.

For EcoRes, a vital aspect is the "green" nature of this medium, allowing interaction without requiring printed materials, international air travel, or other extensive resource use.

To facilitate the proceedings, discussions are led through a progressive framework of questions and focus points by the moderating team. Subject timelines are provided, and discussion archives are maintained for participant reference.
