The 70th Annual Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) Conference will provide a forum to celebrate past conservation accomplishments as well as share and promote science-based knowledge on critical, current issues facing soil, water, and environmental sustainability. This year’s conference will take place in North Carolina, the home state of Hugh Hammond Bennett, which provides a unique combination of conservation history and Southern hospitality. Already an active soil scientist in the years prior to the Dust Bowl, Bennett witnessed first-hand the social and environmental devastation of significant erosion. His nation called on him to help stem the tide of its worst environmental disaster by implementing soil saving practices in the Great Plains and beyond. Hugh Hammond Bennett later helped found the Soil and Water Conservation Society and led the charge of identifying and applying sound science in pursuit of conserving soil and water resources. With the same mission today, even greater natural resource challenges are met in the midst of climate change and increasing populations. The path paved by Bennett’s efforts and example provides a solid foundation, and conservationists must strive to continually improve the use and preservation of resources to build a sustainable future. One way the SWCS is moving forward on current environmental challenges is by incorporating the former National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) National Water Conference into the International Annual Conference, which will increase collaborative opportunities for land-grant based scientists and educators engaged in water issues. SWCS welcomes this addition to the already diverse audience and the enhancement it will provide to all conference participants.

Environmental protection in a multi-stressed world: challenges for science, industry and regulators.

The innovative use of chemicals and nanomaterials in new technologies, industry and agriculture challenges many aspects of the ecosystem functioning of the global environment. However, these new technologies and materials also offer opportunities to remediate or minimise these anthropogenic insults. Finding innovative solutions to environmental problems is ever more important in the current economic scenario. For SETAC, this is a challenge we relish. This international conference brings together experts from government, industry, consultancy and academia to meet this challenge. The conference will focus on the most recent advances in environmental sciences and will provide platforms for implementing this knowledge, for improving the protection of our environment and to shape policies from current viewpoints to future needs.

SETAC Pellston Workshop on Environmental Mixtures

Over the past 10-15 years, there has been an increased emphasis on the monitoring of “emerging or trace organic contaminants” leading to long lists of chemicals observed in the field and open questions regarding the potential of their combined effects. Several major studies have investigated the potential combinatory effects of these chemicals within the context of other, non-chemical, stressors via field studies, a.k.a. eco-epidemiology. These studies have provided frameworks that guide investigators through large and highly complicated datasets by reducing complexity and providing recommendations for appropriate management action. While these frameworks have clearly advanced environmental science, risk assessment and potential management, they remain elusive for most stakeholders. In essence, they appear to be too complicated for verification and forecasting for risk managers.

There is a need for testable frameworks that simplify the complexities of assigning causality and provides tools that can be used for forecasting risks based on potential exposure scenarios. This 5 day SETAC Pellston international workshop will address this need by exploring whether the complexities of diverse potential exposure-responses can be simplified into exposure scenarios. Participants in the workshop will address the scientific underpinnings of mixture toxicity and help refine and simplify these per exposure scenario. It is expected that retrospective methods can be used to test the veracity of these decision criteria and then be flipped to forecast the potential effects of chemical mixtures.

A key output from the workshop will be guidance on how generalized decision trees can be used in forecasting where chemical exposure may represent a potential concern.
