The vision of prof. Hokkanen, who is also is the coordinator of a new UA Thematic Network on “Sustainable Production and Foraging of Natural Products in the North“, is to connect the ICE 2020 with the work and activities of the UArctic. Helsinki will be the northernmost location ever for the ICE, and therefore placing emphasis on Arctic and Climate Change Entomology is well-suited for the congress. The overall theme for the ICE 2020 will be “Entomology for our Planet Earth”.
