DAAD Alumni Workshop: Tropical diversity, ecology and land use - Harmonizing human needs and nature (17 - 21 February 2016, Berlin, Germany)

Within the framework of the European Conference of Tropical Ecology 2016 in Göttingen, the DAAD organises an Alumni summer school.

It is the purpose of this workshop to link state-of-the-art discussions and approaches of research in tropical ecology with topic-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and critical aspects concerning the 2030 agenda. Thus, the workshop is designed to deliver topic and application oriented contributions to the conference and towards an operationalization of the SDG approaches.

With its collaborative approach, it will promote north-south, south-south and regional scientific and transdisciplinary networking and knowledge exchange structures.

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to become part of a commonly created working group as well as of the huge SLE TRAINING network (about 700 persons by the end of 2015).

Online applications are open until November 30, 2015.
