The second in the series centered a dialogue on antagonistic responses to science and technology. By Darren McAlmont University Relations Waterloo researchers are renowned for transforming societies, economies, technologies, sustainability and health for humanity to thrive in our complex future. However, scholars in many fields have experienced hostile responses to their work.
Inspiring children around the globe to learn about soil diversity - that is the aim of an initiative launched by Malte Jochum, an ecologist at the University of Würzburg.
University commits to preventing and addressing dangerous substance use among its students. The Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is stepping up the way it tackles alcohol and drug use among students. Its new policy on substance use is intended to encourage the responsible use of alcohol, cannabis, other illicit drugs and psychoactive medication by ensuring students are aware of the risks.
A new study from Simon Fraser researchers examines the Canadian military's efforts to reduce the impacts of underwater noise pollution on species during training exercises in the Pacific Ocean but caveat that more can still be done.
Professor Priti Parikh (UCL Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction), Professor Mark Maslin (UCL Geography) and Carole Roberts (UCL Geography) estimate the carbon footprint of travel to COP28 in Dubai for different modes of transport in The Conversation.
We are not on track for the much-discussed and debated 1.5-degree C restriction on global warming, which has been the cherished target of every COP since 2015 in Paris, according to Oxford Professor Lavanya Rajamani , an expert in International Environmental Law. The Report of the Technical Dialogue of the Global Stocktake from September was very clear about this. Despite all the pledges and all the talk, we are on an overshoot pathway.
Researchers of the University of Valencia (UV) participate in REDUCE (Reducing bycatch of threatened megafauna in the east central Atlantic), a project on Europe program, to promote more sustainable fisheries management and reduce the bycatch of the most threatened marine wildlife. This initiative has thirteen partners from five different countries and it will help protect marine biodiversity and promote the sustainability of European long-distance fisheries in the East Central Atlantic. The project has been funded with almost 9 million euros.
New genetic research has revealed how British otters were able to recover from species loss in the 1950s with the help of their counterparts from Asia.
Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL Climate change will significantly alter the Swiss forests.
Modelled on nature: researchers have developed a new material that replicates the structure responsible for the blue feathers of the North American song bird, among many other birds. It also has other striking advantages.
Each policy will help reduce carbon emissions, preventing concomitant climate change and premature deaths In a recent review of more than 180 peer-reviewed articles - which I conducted with fellow researcher Richard Parncutt - we found that a scientific consensus has formed around the so-called 1,000-ton rule .
Levels of banned chemicals in UK-stranded orcas are 30 times over the toxic threshold, uncovers new research. Levels of banned chemicals in UK-stranded orcas are 30 times over the toxic threshold, uncovers new research.
The University of Innsbruck is enhancing its science communication in the fields of climate, biodiversity, and sustainability.
