Event description
This free online event is coordinated by a range of interest groups with the aim of sharing knowledge on peatlands projects & research

About this event

Ireland’s extensive peatlands feature prominently in many aspects of society, as they have done for decades and centuries past. The many and varied cultural and scientific perspectives on the management of these peatlands has brought us to a place where there are still several different viewpoints on where the future lies in relation to this natural resource.

The Peatlands Gathering 2021 will feature contributions from Ireland and around the world by those who are actively involved in farming and conservation of peatlands, scientific understanding of greenhouse gas emissions and water management, rehabilitation and restoration of degraded peatlands, community stewardship and cultural aspects.

This free online event is being organised and coordinated by a range of interest groups with a view to sharing knowledge of projects, research, and initiatives, as well as identifying challenges, and data and policy gaps in this area.

A programme of presentations and discussions on peatlands has been prepared for October 7th & 8th, 2021 and will be available on the event website: www.peatlandsgathering.com

(If COVID allows, on October 9th, Peatlands Gathering will also offer a series of optional field trips to peatland areas of Ireland where some of these exciting projects have been undertaken. See www.peatlandsgathering.com for further details.)
