For the third time, the Swiss Academy of Sciences is organizing a national conference on research within the framework 'Park Research Switzerland.' The aim of the conference is to show which topics are currently being investigated in parks of national importance and UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Switzerland in order to reflect on the practice and to identify research gaps.
The conference is aimed at all researchers and individuals working in parks and UNESCO World Heritage sites, as well as persons from federal and cantonal offices, non-governmental organizations, and environmental and planning offices.
Please note that although the call is in German and French, submissions are also accepted in English.
A Mountain Research Initiative survey is looking for insights into the major challenges for mountain governance, and what is being done to foster sustainability in the world’s mountains.
The MRI invites the mountain research community to provide valuable insights into governance in mountain environments by participating in a short online survey. Through this survey, we hope to gain a deeper understanding of the major challenges for governance, and what is being done to foster sustainability in the world’s mountains. We are particularly interested in insights from in-depth case studies that have paid attention to governance as part of the data collection process.
