The 2024 Beskydy Workshop on the theme of “Nature-Based Governance: Coevolutionary and transformative perspectives on the biodiversity and climate crises” is chaired by Tatiana Kluvánková, SlovakGlobe – Slovak Academy of Sciences, CETIP, the former chair of the 2021 Bratislava Conference on Earth System Governance. The workshop is organized in tandem with the ESG Project Taskforce on Nature and Biodiversity and is an endorsed event of the Earth System Governance Project for scholars wishing to join an in-person event this year.
Nature-based solutions (NBS) are socio-ecological arrangements that benefit both humans, non-humans, and their living environments. While the importance of NBS is already well acknowledged, the intertwined dynamics of the social and the ecological processes, and particularly their relevance for governance is still not well understood. Little attention has also been given how nature can inspire governance. Beskydy 2024 workshop explores nature-based governance in co-evolutionary and co-creative perspective by responding to people and non-human views and for more effective transformation pathways towards inclusive and resilient communities.
The 2024 Beskydy Workshop will be organized around the four themes contained in the 2018 Earth System Governance Science Plan and research agenda of Horizon Europe project COEVOLVERS: targeting the Coevolutionary approach to unlock the transformative potential of Nature-Based Solutions for more inclusive and resilient communities.
