Call for Abstracts

 

How to recover/heal communities, wellbeing and create resilient places from the ashes of wildfires?

 

Regional Science, assumed as Territorial Medicine, has to react and think about Forest Fires that are increasingly occurring and hurting particular places around the world: California, Norwest of Iberia and Southeast Australia.

 

Our hope is that the interdisciplinary and open approach of regional science, its methodological capability and its multi scale and diverse spatial scope can contribute to help the cure of unhealthy and suffering places and their peoples.

 

The journal Regional Science Policy and Practice in collaboration with the Portuguese Regional Science Association and other journals and associations that want to join the initiative, promote a seminar on Forest Fires at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra on December the 20th of 2017.

The idea is to stimulate the production of scientific papers to publish in a special issue of the journal Regional Science Policy and Practice and other publication (books, articles). The attitude is to overcome the phase of identification of the causes and causers of forest fires that is done and should be included in the literature review.

 

Beyond that, the aim is to collect scientific contributions that can help the cure of the territory acknowledging that places are the cumulative outcome of the will and action of many agents in their institutional, economic and environmental context recreated through time and space; which resilience, sustainability and development is constantly tested by disruptive phenomena.

 

The call for abstracts to the Symposium are open and your participation is very welcome!

 

Deadline for Abstracts submissions:30th November 2017
