The Future of Nature Gros Morne 2015

Lay Summary 

The Future of Nature: Gros Morne was a trans-disciplinary event held from 10-13 September 2015 on the West Coast of Newfoundland. Over seventy researchers from a variety of disciplines across the university, artists, and community leaders, met at three different locations (urban, rural, and wilderness) for four days of talks, exhibits and field trips centering on the theme of nature and environmental issues. The goal was to stage an ecological intervention in a threatened area of the planet (the Bonne Bay region, including Gros Morne National Park) and open up a dialogue with local communities for the sake of envisioning a sustainable future for the area.
