23th Annual Meeting

June 6-9, 2023
Tampa, Florida

Hosted by the University of South Florida

Nature-based Solutions for Resilient Communities

We are excited to host the 23rd annual American Ecological Engineering Society Meeting in Tampa, FL. This year’s meeting theme is “Nature-based Solutions for Resilient Communities." With this meeting, we hope to better contextualize the realm of Ecological Engineering while looking for the next generation to use these emerging practices to solve the world’s grand challenges. The interplay between students, industry professionals, and academia will be a key element of the meeting. We are encouraging industry professionals to attend the meeting as sponsors and mentors and provide insights to entering the field.

The American Ecological Engineering Society’s mission is to promote the development of sustainable ecosystems that integrate human society with its natural environment for the benefit of both by fostering education and outreach, extending professional development and associations, raising public awareness, and encouraging original research.
