Updated: Feb 14, 2023

You can still join if you're quick!

As March 29 and 30 are approaching, our program is rapidly reaching its final form. We are very proud to present two days full of workshops, interactive sessions, documentaries, networking and much more.

On March 29, we will also have two keynote speakers. Ignas van Schaick: "Using big box cinema for public engagement with nature"

Ignas van Schaick

Movie maker Ignas van Schaick broke through with De Nieuwe Wildernis, a movie that treated Dutch nature reserve the Oostvaardersplassen with the professionalism usually reserved for remote rainforests and coral reefs. At Arise Day, he will talk about public engagement. He will also show his latest movie, Onder het Maaiveld, which features scientists from ARISE.

Deon Nel: Perspective on the global biodiversity crisis and how to tackle it

March 30 is themed "Combining forces to tackle the biodiversity crisis" And we're bringing it into practice by having our friends from the Biodiversity XL consortium join in. In the morning, we have some informative workshops, and in the afternoon we and Biodiversity XL offer a number of different activities. Check out the full program here!
