Konrad Steffen: A Celebration of Life

Please join us virtually on Wednesday, September 16 at 3 p.m. MT to celebrate Konrad Steffen’s life and contributions. Koni served as CIRES Director from 2005-2012, and went on to direct the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL).

We will stream the event on YouTube.

If you would like to share a few words during this tribute, there will be a few opportunities between speakers. We plan to use Poll Everywhere to invite people to share a sentence or two, which will display on screen. 

Please also feel free to add any written thoughts or messages on the CIRES condolences page (CIRES login required) or the WSL page. Some of these messages will be displayed during the event.

We continue to mourn the death of our former colleague, and look forward to remembering and celebrating his life. We hope you will join us.
