☛ Evolution societies meet to discuss global issues

The European Society of Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) is inviting evolution societies organized at the national and international levels for a discussion meeting during the ESEB 2022 Congress.

The goal is to tackle current issues that our communities are facing and possible joint actions that can be taken. Potential topics include the teaching of evolution, open access policies, and problems facing the Global South such as visa restrictions, helicopter science, and brain drain. The ESEB invitation was sent out to the presidents of 39 societies across the world.

In case your society haven’t received an invitation but would like to participate, your representative is welcome to join us on Tuesday August 16, 2022, at 18.30 CEST, at Vinicna 7 Street, Prague
(https://goo.gl/maps/SuT7zWQJ4kDL2u7dA) or contact Ute Friedrich (office@eseb.org) to attend virtually.  

☛ Scientist Rebellion introduction and networking meeting (Friday 19.8.)

Scientist Rebellion is a civil resistance movement and a network of academics demanding immediate action from governments to stop climate and ecological breakdown - using the most efficient means available (Gardner, 2021; https://doi.org/10.3389/frsus.2021.679019). Our governments are not acting fast enough to save the planet’s life support systems. Scientific knowledge on the pathways to a livable future has been ignored for decades, and now scientists everywhere are rising up and demanding to be heard. Join an informal lunch-time workshop to share your thoughts and concerns, both about the emergency itself, and about what we can - and should - do to help. The only way to guarantee a safe future (including a career in science) is to act on this threat now. You can simply just show up, or let us know via email that you are interested: sanja.hakala@unifr.ch.
