It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of the Seminars of the Center of Sciences of the Conservation and Sustainability of Rio (CSRio) in 2019!
At the CSRio Seminars, we sought to discuss themes related to biodiversity conservation and sustainability, with keynote speakers. In this semester, the meetings will take place bi-weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium Rio Data Center (RDC), PUC-Rio. The first seminar this year will be on March 21st.
Conducted by Agnieszka Latawiec and Ingrid Pena, this meeting will present “Innovative pro-environmental approaches that transform landscapes on a large scale”, based on experiences and ideas that have created conditions, spaces and processes that have opened paths towards socio-environmental sustainability.
The meetings are open to the public, and the discussion followed by the presentation will be conducted in an open and participatory way. A certificate will be sent to participants who request it. Questions and information: email@example.com
