About the Conference
the Human Dimension, will take place in the Europa Hotel, Belfast. This event will bring together various agencies who work on this topic, with delegates and speakers ranging from professional firefighters, land managers, academics, researchers and government officials. Although a national conference, it will have speakers from around the world, ensuring we learn from what is happening elsewhere in terms of wildfires and their human impact and consequences.
Wildfires continue to be a major threat with devastating consequences, not just for the physical environments they destroy, but also for the lives, livelihoods and, in many cases, homes they put at risk. This event will facilitate the sharing of current best practice in tackling wildfires and managing the serious human impacts left in their wake. It will also showcase emerging themes that have been informed by the best knowledge and experience from the UK and internationally.
The conference will take place in the grand ballroom of the world famous Europa Hotel, located in the heart of Belfast City Centre. This 4 star hotel offers 272 hotel rooms and has hosted many prestigious events and conferences down through the years. Its central location, means it is close to a number of Belfast’s top visitor attractions, city centre shopping and nightlife. For more information visit www.europahotelbelfast.com
