TNC21 – one week to go

Only one week to go and we cannot wait! On Monday 21 June 09:00am CEST, TNC21 will GO LIVE with its virtual platform and welcome all participants to the 36th edition of TNC.

The programme will kick off with the Conference Opening by GÉANT CEO, Erik Huizer and Chair of the GÉANT Board, Andreas Dudler of SWITCH. Highlight of the day is the unmissable keynote ‘If I can do it, so can you’ by Professor Sue Black (UK). Professor Black is the first of four internationally acclaimed keynote speakers including, in order of daily appearance, Professor Paulo Artaxo (Brazil), Dr Adam Lewis (Australia) and Professor Serge Fdida (France).

To help you make the most of TNC21’s virtual platform we have created three tutorials that show you how to personalise the conference programme, view content on demand and connect with other participants.

Get (even more) social at TNC21!


Continuing with the tradition of the TNC Morning Run we encourage participants to share their activity and create some additional buzz around the conference!

Join runners, joggers and walkers in the TNC21 morning runs, wherever in the world you are! As much as it doesn’t need to be a run, it also doesn’t really need to be in the morning at all. Tell us about you, where you live and share the views you enjoy during your runs, jogs or walks.

Tom Fryer, Head of International Relations at GÉANT and TNC Morning Run aficionado comments: “In the absence of the traditional TNC Morning Run, we can still run together virtually, wherever we are in the world, and maybe even some of us at the same time. This way, I think we can somehow recreate that special connection we traditionally share when exploring the wonderful TNC locations.”
