The West Dean Student Conference offers an opportunity to exchange ideas about the need to focus on inclusion, by supporting access into the profession and diversifying approaches within the profession.   

The central focus of the conference is two-fold, reflected in a split approach to sessions:   
•Day 1 will be aimed towards schools, Colleges and Universities, to introduce the field of conservation to younger groups unfamiliar with the profession.   
•Day 2 will be focused within the profession, to discuss how conservation and its application can be adapted to be more diverse and inclusive, and to present conservation approaches from across the global conservation community.

Speaker participation from students, allied professions, global professionals, community groups, and institution representatives are encouraged.  
Abstracts should be in English and 250–500 words in length. Send the submission form along with a copy of your CV.
A selection committee will review abstracts and notify speakers by 24th May.
