Registration is now open for the eighth edition of these scientific conferences organised by the Balearic Natural History Society, which will hold sessions on each island between 23rd November 2022 and 24th January 2023.
The Balearic Islands Environment Conferences are celebrating their eighth edition, with sessions in Menorca on 15 and 16 December 2022. These scientific conferences organised by the Natural History Society of the Balearic Islands (SHNB) in collaboration with the University of the Balearic Islands, the Balearic Government and the Menorcan Institute of Studies, and will be held on each of the islands between 23 November 2022 and 24 January 2023, aim to provide a space for researchers and naturalists to learn about the scientific work that has the Balearic Islands as a common denominator.
In this way, naturalists will be able to find out what work is being carried out in fields other than their own, as environmental aspects are particularly sensitive to the integration of knowledge from apparently distant fields. The conference will serve to present the findings and naturalist research of recent years, disseminate the activities to the general public, stimulate the exchange of experiences and provide information on issues related to the environment.

Palma: 23rd, 24th and 25th November 2022, at the UIB.
Brick: 15 and 16 December 2022, at the IME.

Among the participants of this round table will be representatives of the SHNB, the island councils of each island, the Biodiversity Directorate, the R+D+i Directorate, the UIB and the GOB.
