The term “ecosystem services” rocketed into the consciousness of modern environmental thinking in the first decade of the new millennia. To refer to it in the context of peatlands is more than appropriate – ecosystem services provided by the peatlands are some of the most intriguing services among the other terrestrial ecosystems of the Earth.
International Peatland Congresses are the main forum for The International Peatland Society (IPS) members and other peatland specialists to meet and exchange information. In addition, representatives of peat extracting companies, suppliers of the industry, and peat users are attending to promote their products and services; and politicians and decision-makers come to listen to us experts. All these people from different backgrounds are encouraged to learn from and to network with each other during a week of sessions, meetings and social events.
the International Peatland Congress 2020 will be postponed due to the concerns and suggestions from the Health Board of Estonia surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.
