A workshop by ECRs and for ECRs

The workshop aims to facilitate scientific exchange between early-career researchers (ECRs) from a broad range of disciplines within the overarching themes of climate-environment-cultural changes, which are at the core of both PAGES' and INQUA'S missions. We welcome innovative ideas and approaches that tackle multiple hypotheses of change in past socio-environmental systems with implications for present and future sustainability issues.

The workshop will include four days of oral and poster presentations by ECRs and break-out groups in which participants will work on community-driven questions around the application of paleosciences to study socio-environmental systems. We especially welcome participants researching the social side of paleosciences with interests on how paleoclimatic and paleoecological data and models inform human responses to environmental change.
