This symposium will bring together the plant and soil science communities, with a focus on current and future global challenges. Halifax Hall, Sheffield. 12-13th August 2024.

Our planet is experiencing rapid and transformative changes, largely due to human-induced environmental impacts over the past two centuries. Plants and soils simultaneously stand at the crossroads of these changes, serving as vital components in our mitigation efforts while also being profoundly affected by them. The concurrent challenges posed by climate change, urbanization, population growth, and the urgent need for sustainability necessitate a paradigm shift in how we use and manage our planet's plants and soils to achieve productivity and sustainability goals. This approach must prioritise both productivity and sustainability. To address these pressing challenges, this symposium will unite experts from various disciplines, offering a unique platform for them to share groundbreaking research and foster innovative collaborations.

Speakers will highlight recent advances in plant and soil sciences that are relevant to global challenges related to production, sustainability, and climate change mitigation. By showcasing cutting-edge research, this symposium will provide exciting opportunities for knowledge exchange and collaboration among researchers, scientists, and policymakers to enhance the implementation of innovative approaches. 

All participants are strongly encouraged to submit a 150 word abstract for a poster presentation. We will select a number of these for a 2 minute flash talk presentation (please indicate if you do NOT wish to be considered for this).  Please see 'More Info' tab.
