Integrative Conservation Conference

Integrative Conservation Conference (ICC)
February 16-17

ICC 2024 will take place at the University of Georgia Special Collections Library, with some hybrid and online options. This year’s theme is New Visions for Conservation. Since the inaugural conference in 2018, ICC has brought students, researchers, and practitioners together to share their work and collaborate towards different futures for environmental conservation.

The 2024 conference objectives are to:

  • Create opportunities for all attendees to question and re-imagine our own practices.
  • Value and center multiple ways of knowing, doing, and being by bringing together perspectives both within and traditionally outside of conservation.
  • Provide opportunities for student engagement, mentorship, and peer support.
  • Cultivate visions of, and collaborations oriented towards, more just and livable futures.

Supported in part by the UGA Arts Collaborative.

As part of the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru), select projects also receive further examination and analysis of the collaborative process in an effort to illuminate and understand the mechanisms and conditions that foster these innovative projects. Project contributors will work with a team from a2ru to rigorously articulate, document, and reflect on the modes of collaboration found within their work.
