ITSC 2021 Abstract Submission
Deadline: 1 Dec. 2019
Development and Sustainability is the theme of the conference. The challenges for the future of the turfgrass sector are many and diverse. Climate change impacts are exceeding the worst expectations. Strong restrictions on the use of chemicals and fertilizers, and increasing pressure on natural resources (notably water, energy and land) are expected. There is an accelerating loss of ecosystem services and biodiversity in the urban landscapes. All this calls for more research and innovation for a sustainable future.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Turfgrass industry challenges relating to the United Nations´17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out Agenda 2030 will constitute the conference program framework. The topics for the opening plenary session will relate to these SDGs, and we want all conference delegates to keep this in mind when submitting papers and preparing oral or poster presentations. As a voluntary option, the program committee would like to encourage delegates to tick off below one or maximum two of the UN goals to which your presentation is most closely connected.
Based on the responses to this question, some of the conference delegates will get the opportunity to give a presentation of their research in the opening plenary session.
For more information about the UN development goals, please see:
Select one or two connected goals (optional)
GOAL 1: No Poverty
GOAL 2: Zero Hunger
GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being
GOAL 4: Quality Education
