The 2019 ISSRM and the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has two key partners on the conference. It is collaborating with Aldo Leopold Foundation, an international leader in advancing the understanding, stewardship and restoration of land health, and in cultivating leadership for conservation. “Nothing so important as an ethic is ever ‘written,’” Leopold explained. “It evolves ‘in the minds of a thinking community.’” It will be the 70th anniversary of the publication of A Sand County Almanac, so we will celebrate, workshop, discuss, visit places associated with, and challenge his ideas and legacy. We are also excited to be partnering with the Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) of the Menominee Nation, original inhabitants of a large portion of Wisconsin, including Oshkosh. Among other things, SDI is organizing and facilitating a panel with the tentative title of, “Indigenous Perspectives of People and Place in the Great Lakes Region: Looking Beyond Leopold’s Backyard.”

The conference theme is “Sustainability and the Land Ethic in the Anthropocene.” We subtitle the theme as, “‘A Thinking Community’ Explores Critical Issues in Leopold’s Backyard”, including what a land ethic means in the anthropocene. We envision a focus on big ideas and innovative approaches to understanding and addressing the myriad issues for society and natural resources that have emerged from the new geological epoch we have created. As most ISSRM attendees will no doubt be aware, the anthropocene is marked by the decisive role humans now play in shaping the state, dynamics, and future of Earth and its complex ecological and social systems. Among other indicators, scientists argue that anthropogenic processes now account for more sediment transport than natural processes, such as erosion from rivers, and humans have measurably altered the composition of the atmosphere, oceans, and soils, as well as the cycles associated with carbon, nitrogen, and other elements.
