Our plenary session will set the stage for topics and issues concerning the central theme of this meeting: conservation of fragile karst resources. A panel discussion and featured presenters offer insights gained from working in management of karst resources and UNESCO programs designated to protect these environments. This session will closely reflect the format of plenary sessions at in-person events. We hope you will join us for these presentations and engage in brief discussion and questions afterwards.
8:00 Welcome and Opening Remarks
8:30 Special Message from George Veni, UIS President: 2021 International Year of Caves and Karst
8:45 Stronger Together: A Global Conversation (Panel Discussion)
