An essential part of ZSL's work is facilitating communication between professional scientists, researchers, practitioners, students and the general public. Towards this end, we hold 8-10 monthly public Science and Conservation Events, and 1-2 academic symposia each year under normal circumstances.
Due to the uncertainty of future government restrictions and advice for in-person events, we will be continuing our events programme in the current online format. Our live events are well attended, and the recordings are published on our Science and Conservation YouTube channel afterwards as an online resource, which enables their reach to continue to grow over time. In our first year of online events (October 2020 – June 2021), we’ve accumulated 1.7k subscribers to our YouTube channel, and our events have been viewed 20k times both live and on demand, in 44 countries worldwide! Online events provide a unique opportunity to collaborate with speakers and connect with audiences from around the world.
Proposing a Science and Conservation Event for 2021-2022
ZSL's monthly Science and Conservation Events are an ideal opportunity for scientists to present new research and findings, encouraging collaborations and networking with external organisations, and helping fulfil a wider public engagement remit. Each event consists of three – four talks on a related theme, during a free public session lasting around one hour and 30 minutes. Since October 2020, our events have been hosted online, and previous events can be found here or on our YouTube Channel. You can subscribe to our channel to be notified of future events!
The call for the 2021 - 2022 programme of monthly events is now open!
Please send your proposal to Eleanor Darbey at firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline of Friday 16 July 2021, or get in touch if you would like to discuss a proposal before submitting.
