Questions and challenges emerging from the Green Deal promoted by the European Union will be at the heart of the Conference, including:

  • How to reduce greenhouse gases emissions and enhance carbon dioxide sequestrations;

  • How to improve our knowledge of complex ecosystems involved in ecological transition;

  • How to contribute to the debate on sustainable resource management.

The Conference aims to bring together scientists from a range of disciplines: geosciences, environment, soil, forest sciences, applied mathematics, geography, history, economy, and social and legal sciences. Such diversity is necessary in order to debate the major challenges posed by the European Green Deal.
