A virtual conference on line


A virtual event in August 2020

For its 24th annual conference, the International Environment Forum will organize a virtual event in the second half of August 2020, along with the IEF Annual General Assembly and election of the Governing Board. The conference and General Assembly will be held entirely on line, with voting to precede it by e-mail. IEF members will receive further details and the Annual Report by e-mail.

IEF members will still be contributing to the virtual conference being organized by its sister Baha'i-inspired organization, ebbf - Ethical Business Building the Future (ebbf.org) on 14-17 May 2020. The overall theme of that event continues to be Rethinking Success: a way to save the planet and ourselves, but with more emphasis on the impact of the pandemic on our concepts of success. IEF members who have made reservations for that conference can either participate in the conference as planned, request a refund or extend their reservation to the ebbf conference planned for Lisbon, Portugal, on 13-16 May 2021. The planned speakers for the virtual event this year include Avah Darling-Donnelly (Canada, 16 years old), Shane Tedjarati (China), Layli Miller-Muro (Tahirih Justice Center, USA), Sean Hinton (Open Society Foundations), Nishat Ruiter (TED Conferences), Arash Aazami (Netherlands), Dorothy Marcic (USA), Arthur Dahl (Switzerland), Halldor Thorgeirsson (Iceland) and Sylvia Karlsson-Vinkhuyzen (Netherlands). The last three are IEF board members. Further information will soon be available at: http://ebbf.org/event/ebbfs-30th-international-annual-learning-event-li….
