Tere!

Welcome to the 10th biennial conference of the European Society for Environmental History (ESEH), Boundaries in/of Environmental History!

Estonian Centre for Environmental History (KAJAK) was founded at Tallinn University as recent as 2011 and has promoted environmental history in the Baltic region since then. It is a great honour for us at KAJAK to host Europe’s best environmental historians on the Society’s 20th anniversary in Tallinn! We do our best to make it a memorable and enjoyable event.

Take your time to enjoy not only the intellectual vibes of the conference but also Estonia’s capital Tallinn, the great food and drinks offered here and its manyfold cultural and outdoor activities!

See you in Tallinn!
