UKZN to host Global Change 2016

July 08, 2016

The South African Global Change Science Committee, together with University of  KwaZulu Natal, are excited to announce the hosting of the third DST/NRF National Global Change Conference at the University of KwaZulu Natal Durban Westville Campus between the dates of 5 and 8 December 2016. On-campus accommodation will be available at competitive rates.

The Global Change Grand Challenge (GCGC) is now in its 6th year of implementation and together with related NRF/DST Global Change programmes have produced a substantial amount of new knowledge and information, and has funded the development of many post graduates. 

The main purpose of this biennial conference is to bring together the diverse global change research community in South Africa in order to share recent progress across the broad scope of the global change programme, with a special focus on post graduate students. In 2014 this event provided a forum for many students to present their new work, and fostered lively debate and discussion, and opportunities for greater trans-disciplinary and inter-institutional collaboration. The conference will provide an opportunity for post graduate students, emerging researchers, group leaders, and exhibitors to locate their contribution in the context of the Global Change Grand Challenge. This will also provide a platform to raise awareness of the multiple opportunities that exist for career development in global change.

A call for formal registration will be announced in due course.

Yours sincerely
Prof Guy Midgley
