The « Governance of Socio-Ecological Systems (GOSES) » 3rd Summer School of Sustainability will be held in Reims, 3-8 July 2016, as a contribution to IHP-VIII.

The University of Reims, in partnership with UNESCO-IHP, is hosting a Summer School on the Governance of Socio-Ecological Systems (SES), which is a rapidly emerging issue in many environment-related disciplines and especially sustainability science.

This edition aims at bringing together scholars who work on the governance of socio-ecological systems at different levels, from local to regional and global, as well as from different perspectives, including ecology, biology, geography, planning, political science, international relations and the emerging discipline of sustainability science.

UNESCO-IHP is contributing to the programme of the Final Conference, presenting the relevance of IHP-VIII programme to this topic, addressing in particular the governance of groundwater resources and raising awareness on aquifers, that are “still not visible enough” socio-ecological systems.
