Applications are open for the STEPS Centre Summer School on pathways to sustainability, which takes place in May 2014 in Sussex, UK.
The aim of this course is to provide an overview on the latest developments and emerging practice in SEA.
COST will organise on 7 - 9 April 2008 in Innsbruck (Austria) a Strategic Workshop on 'Global Change and Sustainable Development in Mountain Regions' focusing on the identification of implications and challenges of climate and socioeconomic change for the future development of mountain regions.
Thus global warming, land use change, biodiversity and carbon sequestration, water, natural disasters, primary production as well as tourism, sustainable transport and socio-economic issues are identified as key questions for the future and dealt in keynotes and working groups.
The objective of the Strategic Workshop is to provide rationales and guidelines for mountain research agendas and funding agencies. Target groups therefore are researchers, project managers, sponsoring agencies, politicians and practitioners. As former strategic workshops organised by COST have proved, the conference may have a direct and effective impact on European research strategies and funding policies. The participation of many and the most prominent actors in mountain research and policies are important for the impact of this conference. The participants may be sure to have been included in this dynamics from the very beginning on.
Detailed information on the workshop is available under http://bfw.ac.at/mountain/ or by contacting the local organisers Dr. Robert Jandl (Austrian Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape (BFW), Email: email@example.com) or Prof. Axel Borsdorf (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are at a turning point in history. Rising temperatures are now recognized as a sign of our planet in crisis. Inequities between rich and poor, North and South, grow ever deeper. The global economy has failed in its promise to produce and deliver basic goods in an efficient manner for an expanding population, leaving increasing numbers in abject poverty.
The Student Conference on Conservation Science series in Cambridge, Australia, Beijing, Bangalore and New York is the only international series of conservation conferences aimed entirely at students. SCCS helps young conservation scientists gain experience, learn new ideas and make contacts that will be valuable for their future careers. Over the past 14 years, we have hosted over 2,300 delegates from 119 countries worldwide.
