2019 ISSRM – JUNE 2-7

INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON SOCIETY AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

The 2019 ISSRM and the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has two key partners on the conference. It is collaborating with Aldo Leopold Foundation, an international leader in advancing the understanding, stewardship and restoration of land health, and in cultivating leadership for conservation. “Nothing so important as an ethic is ever ‘written,’” Leopold explained. “It evolves ‘in the minds of a thinking community.’” It will be the 70th anniversary of the publication of A Sand County Almanac, so we will celebrate, workshop, discuss, visit places associated with, and challenge his ideas and legacy. We are also excited to be partnering with the Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) of the Menominee Nation, original inhabitants of a large portion of Wisconsin, including Oshkosh. Among other things, SDI is organizing and facilitating a panel with the tentative title of, “Indigenous Perspectives of People and Place in the Great Lakes Region: Looking Beyond Leopold’s Backyard.”
