Conference Dates


The Conference title is: “Global challenges, local impacts: rethinking governance, sustainability and consumption in light of climate change”.


Three main domains were selected to organize the topics of the conference, each one with several sub-categories.


a) Governance – it addresses the person-community-institutions relations, comprising the challenges arising from environmental (in) justice, new collective and activist movements, co-management of natural resources, and community-based approaches.



  • Collective and co-responsible approaches to climate change impacts;

  • Institutional and activist responses to environmental (in)justice;

  • Built and natural spaces and landscapes: meanings, uses and policies;

  • Nature-based solutions in the city: community participation and engagement in urban planning.


b) Sustainability - to cover mechanisms and processes taking place to achieve a more sustainable society, including people-environment relations in natural, urban, rural, and organizational/work settings, as well as in the interfaces between settings. Human’s responses to extreme events, as well as interventions to promote health and well-being are important topics to be considered.



  • Addressing sustainability through multi, inter and trans-disciplinary work and principles;

  • Sustainability and social innovation research;

  • Sustainable mobility and transportation;

  • Personal and social uses of domestic, work and public spaces;

  • Health and well being related to natural and built settings;

  • Risk perception and communication;

  • Place relations and the global-local interplay;

  • Spill-over effects and processes across behaviors and contexts;

  • Representations of rural spaces and landscapes;

  • Use of creative art to promote sustainability;

  • Experiences of low-carbon transitions;

  • Gentrification and touristification.


c) Consumption – to address consumption and production processes, as well as those related to renewable and efficient energy and sustainable infrastructures, in order to reduce resource use, degradation and pollution.



  • Sustainable lifestyles and green economy;

  • Resource crises and environmental research;

  • New patterns of production and consumption;

  • Ecological behavior and climate change;

  • Environmental education and sustainable lifestyles;

  • Leisure and tourism behavior.


Submissions addressing the Covid-19 pandemic are also welcomed.
