The 35th Congress of the International Society of Limnology AUGUST 22-27, 2021 held in Gwangju, Republic of Korea was a great success! Its theme Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services for Healthy Rivers, Lakes and Humans drew over 500 people from more than 50 countries. Over 100 students and early career researchers participated in on-line courses and over 50 students had inspiring brain dates with Eminent Scholars. On-line Working Group meetings also saw a healthy participation of members. Keeping with SIL’s mission to encourage and train students and early career researchers, 32 students acted as co-chairs for the various sessions of the congress, giving them precious hands-on experience both in scientific discussion and the workings of a scientific meeting.
