Joint PhD seminar on environmental challenges

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganisation of workshop/ seminar/ course

Description

Research on global environmental challenges – such as climate change and biodiversity loss – have important scalar elements that researchers must take into consideration. For example, can research findings at one point of a spatial scale (say, in one municipality or on one field site) contribute to understanding at a different scale (say, downward to one neighborhood or upward to global fluxes)? To analytically move between the abstract and the concrete, and between the local and the global can both strengthen the research in terms of its applicability, but also requires a consciousness by the researcher to what that movement implies.
