Dear SURE Members,

After our previous message about postponing the 3rd SURE World Conference in Poznań, we received some requests to consider again the new date of our event. Organizers of the European Landscape Ecology Congress (IALE 2021) noticed that both big conferences would start on this same day. We discussed this issue with Juergen Breuste, who agreed with our idea to postpone the SURE2020/21 the next two days and to schedule our meeting on 7-9. July 2021.

So we shape an opportunity to participate in both attractive meetings in Poland within one week. We are convinced that these complementary events will provide welcoming forums to present research and to discuss new ideas for both urban- and landscape ecology.
