Fountainhill Estate’s Sixth Research Symposium
Since 2016, Fountainhill Estate (FHE) has hosted an annual Symposium showcasing the environmental and agricultural research underway at FHE and in the wider uMngeni Catchment of which it forms a part.
Over the years, contributions from the Symposium have been synthesised to inform further research, promote inter and intra-disciplinary cooperation and to promote and operationalise implementable findings in the larger community.
This year, FHE invites you to join the sixth edition of this popular Symposium to hear about the impressive research and management work that has continued unabated.
Whilst the 2022 symposium will primarily be in person, arrangements have been made to attend online if necessary.
Co-hosted with the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s (UKZN) Centre for Transformative Agricultural and Food Systems (CTAFS) and the Institute for Natural Resources (INR), this year’s Symposium will focus on “MANAGING AND REHABILITATING THE ENVIRONMENT FOR BIODIVERSITY OPTIMISATION”.
The event will include presentations of formal academic research, observational studies, surveys and citizen science. The multi-disciplinary programme provides many opportunities for cross-pollination of ideas and research findings.
Attendance and presentation at the event is welcomed from academia, citizen scientists, neighbouring landowners, environmental specialists and interested parties who wish to present papers at the symposium. Research leaders availing themselves of Fountainhill Estate are expected to participate.
Symposium Fee: R100 p/p per day for in-person attendance
