24–29 September 2017 IUFRO 8.01.02 Landscape Ecology Conference 2017
We aim to address to what extent and how the status of any particular forest ecosystem and its temporal dynamics should be included in the overall assessment of ecosystems and their services at larger scales such as landscape scale. Such understanding is indispensable to adaptive management at multiple scales and the assessment of land use changes that might increase or decrease forest areas, including transitional states, and the availability of ecosystem services.
The conference will address particularly the topic "Green-Blue-Nexus in information society —supporting integrative forest management across scales and actors", while space will be conserved for other IUFRO LE and—as an interface to IALE—other landscape ecology relevant themes.
21–25 May 2018 2018 International Conference on Ozone and Plant Ecosystems
We are pleased to announce that the International Conference on Ozone and Plant Ecosystems (2nd Ozone and Plants Conference) will be held from May 21 to May 25, 2018, in Florence, Italy.
Ozone pollution continues to be a serious issue for terrestrial ecosystems and plant health. Progress has been achieved by controlling the emission of precursors in some areas of the world, but much remains to be done. This conference will allow all experts in the interactions between ozone and plant ecosystems to meet and discuss the state of the art and the strategies for continuous improvements. The three man subjects of the conference are:
1. Monitoring, modelling and assessing the risk of ozone damage to plant ecosystems
2. How plant ecosystems respond to ozone exposure
3. How plant ecosystems affect ozone concentration in the atmosphere

7–9 September 2015 The 5th World Sustainability Forum
Centre for Teaching and Research of the University Hospital of Basel
2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.
The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.
