Call for proposals 

to host the 2024 World Congress of Environmental History (WCEH)

 

NEW deadline for proposals: 31 May 2021.

 

After three very successful international meetings (in Copenhagen, Denmark, Guimarães, Portugal, and Florianopolis, Brazil) the fourth World Congress for Environmental History is scheduled for 2024.  

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the International Consortium of Environmental History Organizations (ICEHO) has extended its call for proposals from parties interested in hosting the 2024 conference, preferably in July or August of that year.

The extended deadline for proposals is 31 May 2021.

We encourage proposals from any part of the globe. Proposals should come in the first instance from individuals or organizations affiliated with universities or scholarly societies. While the support of local convention and visitors’ bureaus may become important once the site is proposed and under consideration, the proposal should not come directly from the convention and visitor’s bureau or events services. 

If you are interested or if you would like to submit a notice of intent, please contact ICEHO President Graeme Wynn at wynn@geog.ubc.ca or ICEHO Secretary Alexandra Vlachos at alexandra.vlachos@hist.unibe.ch for further details and a copy of the conference guidelines. 

We aim to finalize the site selection by November 2021.  

Please keep in mind that hosting a conference that will likely attract 500-750 delegates requires substantial effort and time as well as significant institutional support and fundraising, but it is also a terrific opportunity to showcase local/ national scholarship, to advance environmental awareness and to promote local initiatives.
