The AIMES/GLP Working Group on Large-scale Behavioural Models of Land Use Change is pleased to invite you to the second webinar of their new series on 30 April.
New research just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) shows that human land use reshaped ecology across most of Earth’s land for at least 12,000 years, revealing that the main cause of the current biodiversity crisis is not human destruction of uninhabited wildlands, but rather the appropriation, colonization, and intensification of use in lands long managed sustainably by prior societies. Does global land use history matter for land system science today? How, and why? A GLP panel will discuss these questions together with authors of the paper, bringing together experts in land systems science, geography, ecology, and archaeology.
The GLP Integration of Rural and Urban Land Systems Working Group is pleased to invite you to the third webinar of their new Young Speakers Series. The GLP Young Speakers Series is held monthly and is a platform particularly for young researchers to present their work and to connect to each other as well as to more senior researchers.
The GLP Socio-Ecological Land Systems of Latin America Working Group would like to invite you to their third webinar, featuring presentations by Ignacio Gasparri and Graziano Ceddia.
The Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP) is happy to announce that its third ESP Europe Regional conference will take place in Tartu, Estonia from 7-10 June 2021. The conference theme is 'Ecosystem Services Science, Policy and Practice in the face of Global Changes'. This conference will be organised as a hybrid event, allowing for both in-person and digital participation.

The LANDac Annual International Conference offers a podium for knowledge exchange between researchers, practitioners and private sector representatives interested in land governance for equitable and sustainable development.
Attend a session at the 3rd World Conference of Society for Urban Ecology SURE conference titled “Governance mixes for sustainable peri-urbanization”
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will run an ONLINE international Summer School on the topic of land use and ecosystem change between the 9.-20. August 2021. The summer school courses will students to a wide range of issues related to ecosystem functioning, socio ecological systems and land use change. Deadline: 30 April
This international training program examines the mountain ecosystems in contexts of human development and natural resources, principles of managing natural resources, and governing the resources for sustainable conservation. It is intended to build the capacities of future leaders (researchers, students, practitioners and scholars). Deadline to apply: 31 January
The call for papers for the 11th INPUT conference on Innovation in Urban and Regional Planning, titled “INPUT2020 - Integrating Nature-Based Solutions in Planning Science and Practice”, is now re-opened. The conference will be held on 8-10 September 2021 in Catania (Italy), after the postponing of the conference due to the global pandemic situation. Deadline: 15 March
As one of a series of virtual conferences organized by the International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC), this virtual conference aims to broaden a dialogue between traditional commons scholars, practitioners and researchers from the IASC and related global change research communities, regional research networks and organizations working with Indigenous Peoples and local communities. These include but are not limited to the Global Land Programme, the Political Ecology Network (POLLEN), and others. Registration begins: 1 May 2021
The call for contributions for the next ITD conference, being held online from September 13-17, is now open. The conference is co-organised by the Network for Transdisciplinary Research and Transdisciplinarity Lab, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Deadline: 18 April
Landscape 2021 will bring together scientists from across disciplines with key actors to explore whether and how diversity and diversification can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agriculture. Papers and posters deadline: 1 March. See full article for additional important dates.
In this workshop we aim to challenge traditional boundaries to develop interdisciplinary and cross-scale frameworks for the next generation of socio-ecological systems models.
