2020 ISCHE Retreat - Postponed until 2021
The 2020 ISCHE retreat has been postponed until June 7-11, 2021 due to the global coronavirus pandemic. The retreat will still be held at Hardingasete, Norway. Please see below details for the retreat in 2020, which will be updated as we plan the rescheduled retreat.
ISCHE will hold its 5th international retreat titled Translation & Communication: Protecting Children from Toxic Chemicals at Hardingasete, Norway.
Located on a beautiful fjord and the Flgefonna glacier, Hardingasete is described as "rustic luxury" and is the perfect venue to re-energize and connect with a broad community of researchers, clinicians, regulatory and advocacy professionals, and students interested in children's environmental health.
ISCHE will provide transportation via ferry from the Bergen airport to Hardingasete. The ferry ride, which will take 2.5 – 3 hours, will transport you through the Norwegian fjords to Hardangerfjord, the Queen of the Norwegian fjords and one of the most picturesque places in Norway. We highly encourage you to plan your travel arrangements to arrive in time for the ferry.
There will be an optional field trip to the historic Folgefonna glacier, the third largest glacier in Norway, following the close of the meeting. ISCHE will provide transportation via bus from Hardingasete to Bergen on June 5 at 10:30 AM (~2 hours) for those not attending the field trip. Those attending the field trip will be transported to the glacier and back to Bergen via ferry/bus.
The cost for registration will be $800 USD until the early-bird deadline of March 1, 2020 and $900 USD after March 1. ISCHE has rented the entire Hardingasete venue and all lodging and food expenses will be included in the registration charge.
