The inaugural Garden Route Interface Meeting was held during September 2017 at Pine Lake Marina near Sedgefield.

This meeting aims to facilitate networking and dialogue among practitioners and researchers interested in understanding and managing (or navigating) social-ecological systems and their complex interactions and feedbacks. The Interface meeting attracted 75 delegates in its first year and proceedings included 24 oral presentation, 14 poster presentations and 2 dialogue sessions. The main discussion themes were on the establishment of long-term social ecological research sites, methods for and challenges in studying social-ecological systems, sustainable resource use, adaptations and transformations in SES, ecosystem services and benefit flows, ways in which people connect with nature, and advice for bridging science-management divides.
