The 3rd World Congress of Environmental History will be held in Florianopolis, Brazil, at the campus of the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina from 22 to 26 July 2019. The theme of the 2019 Congress is Convergences: The Global South and the Global North in the Era of Great Acceleration.

The World Congress of Environmental History is the chief activity of the ICEHO and is called every 5 years. Previous editions in Copenhagen (Denmark, 2009) and Guimarães (Portugual, 2014) consolidated the WCEH as a unique opportunity for scholars from different disciplines to situate environmental history in a planetary perspective.

The convenors warmly welcome colleagues and scholars from every continent for this event.
