17th SWS Europe Chapter conference
Connecting wetlands functionning and biodiversity towards nature-based solutions
June 14th-16th 2022
Organised by Society of Wetland Scientists, Europe Chapter & Tour du Valat
Welcome to the Europe Chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists. The Europe Chapter was founded with the intent of bringing together wetland scientists and other professionals from around Europe who share common interests in wetland science and management.
SWS Europe is focused on understanding and advancing wetland science, as well as assuring that decision-making processes affecting wetlands are based on an understanding of wetland science. Carrying out this mission requires members who are informed about both the underlying science and the kinds of considerations that affect decision-making, many of which are specific to Europe and in particular the European Union. In addition, our members are technical and professional resources for one another, but only if members know each other.
