The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin and the Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin are glad to welcome you to the 2016 SPNHC conference, held from June 20 through 25, 2016, in Berlin, Germany.

Under the heading “Green Museum – How to practice what we preach?” this 4th meeting of the society evaluates green thinking in collections, museums and botanical gardens. In a world of climate change and ever decreasing biodiversity, sustainability should be the criterion that ideally determines all planning and decisions, ranging from field work to construction projects, from ethical aspects to cost-benefit analyses.
In practice this often is compromised by constraints beyond the control of the institution, be it monetary, legal or other.

The conference will offer a forum to discuss possible ways of reconciling the seemingly opposing requirements. We welcome your contributions to this or other topics and look forward to hosting you in 2016.

iDigBio is taking part in several of the symposia and other related activities at SPNHC 2016. Here are some highlights and links.
