From 27-30 August a conference on renewable energies and their impact on wildlife will be held in Stirling, Scotland.
The Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts Conference (CWW) is an event that addresses how to address the environmental impacts of wind farms. The event also encourages researchers, proponents, consultants, regulators and stakeholders with experience in finding solutions to these environmental problems to work together and share their knowledge. This promotes a collaborative approach to solving the main problems facing wind farms.
The conference is held every two years and attracts a global audience. To date, there have been four CWW events. The first took place in Norway in 2011, followed by Sweden in 2013, Germany in 2015 and Portugal in 2017. The fifth conference will be held in Scotland in 2019.
The 5th Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts 2019 Conference (CWW 2019) is being held in Stirling, Scotland, from 27 to 30 August 2019.
Experts from around the world will gather at the University of Stirling for a series of conferences, sessions and workshops to share their knowledge on the impact of wind energy on wildlife and discuss the challenges ahead for this dynamic industry.
Part of the Sens Of Life team will be present and will participate in the event.
