2017 Latornell Succession: The Nature of Change
In this Canada’s 150th, we explore the succession of science, knowledge, policy and organisations and the nature of this change on the environment. Many of us identify with natural or ecological succession – the process by which a plant or animal community successively gives way to another, leading to a new state. But the same is true of our organisations, as we have matured in our purpose and knowledge, and have seen leadership transfer to successive generations. The ongoing growth of knowledge through research, monitoring, observation, analyses and education have informed our actions on the ground, the policies we have developed and our legislative responses to emerging challenges.

Through this year’s theme of Succession, we explore the topics of ecological, policy and organisational succession, and continuing contributions to knowledge. Let us explore where we have been, how that has informed who we are today, and where we are headed.

The 2017 Symposium takes place November 21, 22 and 23, 2017 at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Conference Centre in Alliston, Ontario.
