Call for papers: The role of culture in transformation towards sustainable development in mountains

Mountain communities are undergoing rapid sociocultural change, caused by drivers such as outmigration, urbanization, and increasing insertion into the market economy. Mountain cultural heritage is under threat. But communities are responding in creative ways. How can we ensure that culture is a source of creativity and empowerment, that it constitutes the roots upon which a global ethics can grow, and that it helps bridge the divides between the individual and the communitarian? “Mountain Research and Development” is looking for papers that address these questions and others. Notices of intent are due by 30 September 2018, full papers by 1 February 2019.
