Call for Papers | Pathways Europe 2022: Human Dimensions of Wildlife Conference and Training
It is a pleasure to invite you to the Pathways Europe 2022: Human Dimensions of Wildlife Conference and Training, organized by Wageningen University and Research’s Cultural Geography Group and The Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources at Colorado State University. The conference will take place at Wageningen University and Research in Wageningen, The Netherlands, from October 19-21, 2022.
About the Conference
Pathways Europe is a part of the Pathways: Human Dimensions of Wildlife Conference and Training. Founded by Prof. Michael J. Manfredo and Prof. Jerry Vaske (Colorado State University), the program is designed to address the myriad issues that arise as people and wildlife struggle to coexist in a sustainable and healthy manner.
Since its inaugural launch in the U.S. in 2008, Pathways has gained a reputation as being one of the leading conferences on the human dimensions of wildlife management in the world, regularly attracting researchers from across +30 different countries and practitioners from both agencies and NGOs. After a successful inaugural launch in Goslar, Germany in September 2018, Pathways Europe for another year of international collaboration and conversations critical to wildlife conservation around the globe.
Conference Theme – “Sharing Landscapes”
As human pressures and wildlife populations increase in many regions in Europe and around the world, nature reserves are not sufficient for successful conservation. The need to share landscapes between humans and wildlife presents a major societal challenge. This calls for understanding human-wildlife interactions in complex spatial contexts to attune societal land use needs and wildlife habitat needs. The urgency to make this work has again been emphasized with the emergence of new dynamic social movements, such as the climate action marches of European youth, or the extinction rebellion movement. These movements are gaining attention and momentum and are requesting drastic transformation of policy and governance guiding our relationships with the natural world. For Pathways Europe 2022, we will explore the crucial question: how can we share landscapes in ways that are beneficial for both humans and wildlife, while social representation in decision making is increasingly dynamic and unpredictable?
