ALTER-Net conference 2017 Nature and society: synergies, conflicts, trade-offs

Date: 02. - 05. Mai 2017
Website: http://www.alter-net.info/outputs/conf-2017
Place: Ghent, BELGIUM

Synergies, conflicts and trade-offs in the relationship between nature and society are key processes in socio-ecological systems.  While conflicts are regarded as challenging and difficult trade-offs between ecosystem services are often necessary, the search for synergies and win-win solutions are essential steps in finding lasting solutions to major socio-environmental issues.

Through critical views from a range of disciplines, the conference aims to develop a deeper understanding of conflicts in human-nature relationships, and to explore the possibility that such conflicts may – through their resolution – actually lead to more sustainable solutions.

Through a mix of plenary sessions and interactive ‘living lab’ type workshops, representatives from a wide range of disciplines (including those who may not be considered the ‘usual players’ in environmental debates) will collaborate towards developing a practical guide to nature-related synergies, conflicts and trade-offs, focusing on positive outcomes for nature and society
