Organize an event for Humboldt Day

Organize an event for Humboldt Day

This year’s week of events have just concluded – and we want to issue a heartfelt thank you to all the amazing event organizers who contributed to make the inaugural year a great success – we couldn’t have done it without you!

2020 Event format:

Biogeographers around the world celebrated the inaugural International Humboldt Day during the week of September 12-19, 2020, by hosting and attending free local online or in-person lectures, activities, and presentations, with local organizers finding ways to mark this day in different ways .

The organization and local promotion of each event was done by local hosts, and the International Biogeography Society was happy to support celebrations in the following ways:

  • A “Humboldt’s Legacy” video presentation was featured on the website
  • Listing of specific events were posted on the humboldtday.org website
  • Advertising of overall activities was done on twitter (@humboldtday, #humboldtday), facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/humboldtday) and email lists
  • Financial support was provided for some events in the form of either direct financial support, or through the hosting of webinars, technical support, and general overall organization of events
  • Humboldt Day lecture certificates will be provided to speakers and local organizers to acknowledge their contribution

We were excited to showcase the diversity of biogeographic endeavors and researchers from around the world, and sincerely thank all the amazing and dedicated local organizers who participated. It was a fantastic week of events, and we hope you’ll take advantage of the recordings still online to further engage with and learn from biogeographers from around the world.
