Change in event venue: University of KwaZulu-Natal - Pietermaritzburg Campus, Monday 27 March, 14:00-16:00.

Talks on climate change, crop domestication, bee and human health, conservation, evolutionarily-inspired solutions

This event aims to bring together researchers and students to explore and collectively develop ideas on the topics of pollination, plant ecology and evolution, and their links to the Sustainable Development Goals. Very little attention has been afforded to this topic and the seminar will seek to elaborate critical perspectives. The workshop as whole aims to open possibilities for future collaboration between South African and Swedish universities.
