Hosted by Scion<http://www.scionresearch.com/>, the second Oceania Ecosystem Services Forum (OESF) will build on the success of the inaugural event in Brisbane, Australia in 2017. That event raised the profile of the value of ecosystems in decision-making in the Oceania region.

OESF 2019 aims to bring together policy-makers, businesses, community leaders and researchers with the aspiration of managing, restoring and creating healthy communities and ecosystems for a resilient future.

The forum will:

- bring together the growing assembly of government, non-government, business, academia, indigenous groups, youth and local communities involved in identifying, measuring, valuing and making decisions about ecosystem services across Oceania;

-provide an opportunity for the ecosystem services community to present, discuss and brainstorm approaches to addressing Oceania's most pressing societal challenges;

-link best practice ecosystem services science (indigenous and mainstream), planning, governance, valuation, accounting and management (e.g. in agriculture, tourism, trade, conservation, protection, restoration and rehabilitation) with the needs of local stakeholders; and

- mobilise and engage Oceania stakeholders in relevant regional and global initiatives.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Christchurch - a top New Zealand tourism destination famous for its gardens, surrounding landscapes and recent inner-city rebuilds.
