The Environmental Effects Assessment Panel (UNEP-EEAP) conference will be held at Linnaeus University, Kalmar, Sweden 24 September–2 October 2020.
UNEP-EEAP gathers researchers with a broad expertise in the various effects of ozone layer depletion. The participants cover health effects, atmospheric chemistry, ecology, materials engineering, etc. and the panel evaluates how ozone layer depletion is affecting human health and ecosystems. This knowledge is then summarised and delivered to the parties of the Montreal Protocol to enable informed decisions. The expert panel meets every year and this year’s conference will be held at Linnaeus University in Kalmar.
The conference starts on 24 September with pre-mingle and registration in the evening. The conference then takes place 25 September–1 October, and the participants depart on 2 October.

Field trip and dinner 28 September
On Monday 28 September, we will visit the island of Öland. Öland is renowned as the island of sun and wind because it is so flat and has more sunshine hours than the mainland. There are also numerous, long beaches, but above all the island has a unique history, culture, and beautiful nature with rich wildlife. We will visit southern Öland where Ottenby Bird Observatory is located. At the bird observatory, studies are carried out with focus on bird migration, the monitoring of population fluctuations, and the role of birds as vectors of pathogens (e.g. avian flu). We will be given a guided tour at the bird observatory and also have the opportunity to enjoy Öland’s unique nature.
In the evening, we will have a dinner at Kalmar Castle. The history of Kalmar Castle goes back 800 years. For a long time, Kalmar Castle was an important fortification, called ‘the key to the realm’ because of its strategic location. Since then, many kings have ruled the castle and left their own marks on it. The castle’s history goes back to the 12th century. It was here that the Kalmar Union was signed in 1397 and the castle was given its present look already during the Vasa kings in the 16th century.
Kalmar and a new university campus
In Kalmar you can feel the wings of history when walking among the beautiful buildings, in the small alleys, and in the town squares. Kalmar is an idyllic town located next to the Baltic Sea and with the island of Öland just a bridge away. In Kalmar, you can enjoy city and nature in the same place. Kalmar Castle and the city park, the university buildings, the paths along the sea – distances are short and within 5–10 minutes you can reach most places. In Kalmar, which to a large part consists of islands, you are always near the sea.
Not far from Kalmar, you will also find Glasriket, where you can see and experience glass and the history of the glassworks.
Registration will open in April 2020
