The Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and its partner institutions invite papers for the 2018 Amsterdam Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change, to be held in Amsterdam on 24-26 May 2018. This conference will be the seventh event in the series of annual European Conferences on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change. This year’s discussions will address the theme ‘Earth System Governance: Theories and Strategies for Sustainability’.
The conference will run through three days, with keynote addresses in plenary sessions, major academic presentations in parallel semi-plenary sessions, and 175 presentations of research papers in a series of seven parallel panel sessions. All presentations have been solicited through an international call for papers and have been selected in a double-blind review through an international review panel of about 70 experts. Every paper proposal has been reviewed by at least 5 international reviewers.
If you are interested in expanding your knowledge, then we definitely recommend that you register here for this conference because this will be a very educational meeting. Throughout the years before, we always had a lot of success with our conferences and we always had more and more people coming in. This year we surely expect to see a much bigger crowd than ever before because we have some very interesting topics and subjects to talk about. The main goal of this conference is not only to educate other people but to discuss certain issues and come up with new ideas that might affect the world for the better. Of course, smart ideas that can affect the entire world are not easy to come by, that’s why we are gathering a large team of professionals who have the potential that is required.
The 2018 Amsterdam Conference is co-hosted by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (MNP), the Netherlands Research School for Socio-Economic and Natural Sciences of the Environment (SENSE), the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, AIRD Environment Canada, and four European research programmes: ADAM, NeWater, REFGOV, and Glogov.org. The conference is endorsed by the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP) and by the World Academy of Art and Science. (more information on partners)
We look forward to welcoming you in May 2018 in Amsterdam! In case you happen to have some friends, who might also be interested, make sure that you invite them to this conference. If we want to achieve something, we need to work together towards that goal, this way we can save a lot of time and come up with much easier solutions. One of the topics that we will be discussing is about cryptocurrencies and how they affect our lives. In the past few years, they have been making a huge impact and we need to talk about them. We hope to see you soon and we will do everything in our power to make these conference days very exciting and unforgettable for you.
