Oaxaca Winter School on Earth System Governance

Date: 01 November 2019 - 04 November 2019
Location: Capulalpam, Oaxaca State, Mexico

The Earth System Governance winter school in 2019 will be hosted in the Zapotec indigenous community of Capulalpam, two hours’ drive from Oaxaca City, in the spectacular natural forests of the Sierra de Juárez in Oaxaca, one of the regions of highest biological diversity in Mexico and in the world.

The 2019 Oaxaca Winter School on Earth System Governance is designed to function as an incubator for early career researchers working on earth system governance. The Winter School aims to:

  • build participants’ knowledge of key concepts and debates in earth system governance;
  • introduce participants to the Earth System Governance project and to fellow researchers in its global community;
  • critically reflect on the Earth System Governance project’s new Science and Implementation Plan and explore how themes and ideas in the plan could enrich participants’ research, teaching and broader societal outreach; and
  • connect the academic concepts in the Science Plan with the Zapotec community’s knowledge systems and lived experience on the ground.

The Winter School will combine a series of stimulating presentations and dialogues on the research lenses in the new science agenda with ample time for participants to get to know each other and discuss their work-in-progress.

The Winter School is immediately followed by the 2019 Oaxaca Conference on Earth System Governance, to be held from 6-8 November, in order to allow participants in the Winter School to also take part in the Oaxaca Conference (separate conference registration is required).
