The first LAHTI LAKES symposium took place on 4-6. June 2018. The symposium brought together international experts to present the state of the art in the science of lake restoration and the underlying biogeochemical processes.
Now we are pleased to announce the second edition of the symposium on 7-9. June 2021. We aim to continue the lively debate about future challenges in the field of lake restoration, such as the impacts of environmental change and economic development on lake systems. The symposium will be organized by the University of Helsinki, Lake Vesijärvi Foundation, and the SIL working group on Lake Restoration. It also forms part of the official Lahti European Green Capital 2021 events.
Lahti Lakes 2021 will take place in one of two formats: 1. Onsite + Online; or 2. Online only. The organizers will closely follow the international travel situation with respect to the Covid-19 pandemic, and adjust plans for the symposium accordingly. A final decision on the format of the symposium will be made in March 2021. We invite participants to pre-register and submit abstracts via the link in the Main Menu until 28.2.2021.
