«Moving Boundaries» specialist conference and public lecture

Boundaries, like those formed by different rock strata in the mountains, colliding continental plates or the tree line are particularly clear indicators of how our planet forms and changes. For this reason, transitions between materials or systems are hot topics in the geosciences. From 17 to 18 November, 600 earth science specialists will meet in Davos for the 15th Swiss Geoscience Meeting focussing on "Moving Boundaries". This year's conference of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) is being organised by the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF.

1. Schweizer Landschaftskongress – Schöne Aussichten?

Verstädterung des Mittellandes, Industrialisierung der Landwirtschaft, Verwilderung im Berggebiet – die Landschaft verändert sich massiv und zunehmend schneller. Wie sieht die Schweiz von morgen aus? Welche Landschaften wünschen wir uns und was sind sie uns wert? Wie prägen Megatrends und Veränderungen in unserem persönlichen Verhalten die künftige Landschaft? Was sind die Treiber und die Steuerungsinstrumente der Landschaftsentwicklung?
