Next Conference: Track 1a
Please look for more information on the track at the 2018 Messina Conference here.
At the 2018 ISDRS Conference in June 2018 in Messina, Italy presentations in our track on theoretical approaches stressed some pivotal topics in sustainability science, like resilience and systems modelling. Moreover, the challenges and limitations caused by human behavior were discussed. The presentations were enriched by thrilling case studies and the presentations came up with new and interesting insights, e.g. concerning SDG impact and housing.
