Event The 7th biennial international conference of the European Society for Ecological Economics: "ESEE 2007: Integrating Natural and Social Sciences for Sustainability"

The conference will explore contemporary scientific approaches for incorporating the concept of Sustainable Development in research and practice, with a particular focus on the bridging of contributions from the natural and social sciences. It will address a broad range of sustainability topics including loss of biodiversity, human vulnerability to global change and water problems on all geographical and institutional levels. The aim of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of societal and natural processes and their interaction through the integration of different scientific methodologies, in order to overcome shortcomings associated with single- and multi-discipline approaches. Impediments to inter- and trans-disciplinary research will be examined and new research approaches for addressing sustainability questions will be identified.
Ahead of the seventh ESEE conference in Leipzig Germany, a special two and a half day workshop will be organized by and for PhD students and Early Stage Researchers on June 3-5, 2007. The objectives of this workshop are three fold: (1) strengthen the European Ecological Economics student network (2) expand students’ perspectives on interdisciplinary science and the future of Ecological Economics, (3) provide a forum for students to share experiences and stimulate collaboration.
