This conference will be the eighth event in the series of annual European Conferences on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change, begun in Berlin in 2001. This year’s conference (22 - 23 February 2008, Berlin, Germany) will address the theme ‘Long-Term Policies: Governing Social-Ecological Change’. It will provide opportunities to bring social-ecological research into international debates and to discuss future perspectives of this field. The conference will bring together recent research and conceptual developments from these scientific approaches to discuss current challenges, research tasks, practical solutions and possible strategies for long-term policies. In particular, we invite papers that deal with one or more of the following issues: research, governance, adaptation, participation, and teaching and knowledge systems for sustainability. We especially invite papers that focus on transdisciplinary social-ecological research.
The deadline for proposals is 15 September 2007. For more information visit: http://www.fu-berlin.de/ffu/akumwelt/bc2008.
