The Latornell Conservation Symposium is one of Ontario’s premier annual environmental events. It will again be held at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Convention Centre in Alliston, Ontario. New for 2014, the 21st edition of the Symposium will be held from Tuesday to Thursday, November 18th to 20th, 2014. The Symposium provides a forum for practitioners, policy makers, nongovernment organizations, academics and businesses to network and discuss the challenges and opportunities in Ontario’s conservation field.

2014 Symposium Theme: Growth & Transformation

Environmental conditions today require us to challenge our conventional approaches and transform how we think, work, and live in order to develop new approaches and opportunities that enable and support a more sustainable future. As great as today’s conservation challenges are, there is also enormous potential to find innovative solutions by tapping into knowledge, partnerships, and evolving tools available to all of us. The Latornell Conservation Symposium program strives to challenge tradition and inspire you to transform and grow in new ways - personally and professionally.
