This summer school will bridge the gap between disciplinary PhD-programs and transdisciplinary (TD) research practice by introducing new TD approaches such as Real World Laboratories and TD methods such as .boundary objects or stakeholder dialogues. Special attention will be given to knowledge integration as this is one of the major cognitive challenges in TD research. Building a strong network and exchanging experiences between you, as young scientists, and leading international senior researchers will be the main focus in lectures, workshops and open spaces.
GEDI will make precise measurements of forest canopy height, canopy vertical structure, and surface elevation. It will radically improve our ability to characterize aboveground biomass, carbon and water cycling processes, biodiversity, and habitat. It is currently scheduled for launch on November 29, 2018.
Submission is now open for proposals to present symposia at the 10th IALE world congress that will be held in Milan (Italy) on 2019, July 1-5. The deadline for submitting symposium proposals is 2018, June 30.
For a Special Issue of Land, GLP Members Dr. Thilde Bech Bruun and Dr. Cornelia Hett as well as colleague Dr. Rob Cramb seek papers that provide new empirical evidence, review papers, and meta-analyses of case studies from the region. They are particularly interested in papers that look at the causes and effects of land-use changes from a multi- or interdisciplinary perspective, from a landscape level to a regional level.
A new study published in Global Environmental Change by Claudia Rodriguez Solorzano and GLP Member Forrest Fleischman explores the value of understanding historical political and institutional conditions in the design and development of effective protected areas. They found protected areas located in areas with greater economic and political equality may be more effective at conserving nature.
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites applications for the 6th Graduate Student Workshop on Socio-Environmental (S-E) Synthesis, to be held August 28-31, 2018, in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.
High-hopes are placed on the intensification of cattle ranching to reconcile agriculture and forest conservation in Latin America. A new study published in Sustainability by GLP Member Erasmus zu Ermgassen and colleagues looks at six on-the-ground efforts in the Brazilian Amazon to make this a reality.
The Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment (GMBA), a global research project of Future Earth, is looking for survey respondants for the project Toward biodiversity-related opportunities for sustainable development - a global social-ecological mountain comparison. For this global assessment, analyses will be performed at the level of mountain ranges or sub-ranges. Accordingly, they are asking for a broad picture of the mountain area respondants know, its nature, and the wellbeing of its inhabitants.
There is currently an opportunity to engage with the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). The organization seeks expert nominations for the assessment on values and the assessment of the sustainable use of wild species.
