4. Challenges of Environment and Human Dimension

Understanding Challenges of Environment and Human Dimension means to integrate all actors in an interdisciplinary academic field for finding common solutions of environmental problems. We invite researchers from the fields of Environment, Biodiversity & Landscape Diversity and Social Sciences.

a. Landscape: linking Nature and Environmental Practices

This topic is an excellent support in developing the idea of multi-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary approach of the landscape and of the environment where we live. During the symposium we will track the following issues: landscape science and governance, transfer from theory to practice, with a focus on environmental problems.

b. Recent environmental changes

The processes and phenomena characterising recent environmental changes are extremely diverse, but the common element putting supplementary pressure and individualising them in relation to the natural evolution of the planet is represented by the human society, here with a double role: determining factor and affected element. Among the recent environmental changes with a global projection are climate changes, reduction of forest surfaces, desertification, loss of biodiversity, changes in land uses, degradation of water bodies, air pollution, soil contamination, deficient management of wastes and hazardous substances, and other aspects connected to the modification of natural systems as a result of human activities.
