Event description

Description

The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies is hosting two events in July 2018. Both events will be held at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), Brisbane

A 2-DAY SYMPOSIUM: “Coral Reef Futures” on Thursday 19th (8.30am - 5pm) and Friday 20th (8.30am - 3.30pm) July 2018 with over 30 presentations from national and international marine scientists, managers and policy makers.

A Public Forum is scheduled for Thursday, 19th July, starting at 5.15pm with canapes and drinks. Event will run for 1 hour and start at 6pm. This year’s host is Adam Spencer, popular media presenter, well known as the quirky intellectual host of ABC’s enormously successful 702 Breakfast radio show from 2006 until early 2014. This event is intended for everyone: the general public, teachers and school children (older than about 10) as well as scientists, resource managers and policy-makers.

In the immediate aftermath of a multi-year global bleaching event, the need for coral reef research has never been greater. In 2017, we witnessed the first back-to-back bleaching event on the Great Barrier Reef, resulting in unprecedented damage to two-thirds of this iconic World Heritage Area.

Returning coral reef systems to their former composition is not possible. The objective is for research to inform and support reef governance and management to navigate the transition to new ecosystems that will maintain biodiversity, biological functions and support human well-being.
