„Cracks in the Concrete Jungle“

5th International Congress on Urban Ecology from 22nd to the 24th of October 2010

 

We are pleased to announce the 5th International Congress on Urban Ecology „Cracks in the Concrete Jungle: New Perspectives on Urban Ecology“ from 22nd to the 24th of October 2010 in Berlin Max-Born-Saal, Max-Born-Str. 2a, 12489 Berlin.


Worldwide, contemporary urban societies are faced with drastic consequences of climate change, demographic shifts and associated economic disparity. What do such challenges mean for the natural environments of cities and for billions of urban inhabitants?
Multidisciplinary solutions are necessary to develop new perspectives and creative strategies for sustainable urban development. For the past eight years, the DFG Graduate Research Training Group 780 "Perspectives on Urban Ecology" has been investigating the interface between cities, nature and people, and is pleased to invite representatives from different disciplines to its final international congress on urban ecology. The Congress Cracks in the Concrete Jungle: New Perspectives on Urban Ecology on October 22nd and 23rd, 2010 focuses on the development of urban nature in the context of such contemporary challenges, especially with regard to the quality of human life.
