It gives us great pleasure to announce that the PECS 3 conference will take place from 12 August – 15 August 2024, in Montreal, Canada. Calls for organised oral symposia and innovative sessions are now open, until 15 November 2023 and can be submitted on the conference webpage.  Call for contributed abstracts will open in November.

We are excited to invite the world’s foremost thinkers and advocates of place-based social-ecological scholarship to PECS3 in Montreal Canada to share ideas on how to transform sustainable development to better contend with the challenges of the Anthropocene informed by issues and solutions in multiple knowledges and values. This conference is co-hosted by The Programme on Ecosystem Change and Society, the Resilience Alliance, and NSERC ResNet.

As Visa application processes to Canada can take a very long time (6-9 months for some countries), we’re offering “advance registration”. This is an “intention to register” (no payment is expected), which will allow us the ability to provide you with an invitation letter to the conference, for visa purposes.  We encourage all participants who need visas to express an intention to register and to apply for your visa as soon as possible.

To receive future announcements and reminders about the conference, including abstract submission deadlines, conference events, funding opportunities, etc. please sign-up for updates on the website.

We can’t wait to see you in Montreal!
