We gladly share the news of the start of the important international seminar APHELEJA 2023.
This prestigious event, organised by Prof. Luiz Oosterbeek, will be attended by some of our International Scientific Committee members. CHAOS congratulates all the organisers and, in particular, Prof. Oostebeeck.
Numerous transdisciplinary and, once again, international research and action projects will be presented during APHELEJA.
From the Official Programme:
"In the past 10 years, over 100 scholars and 200 research students have been involved in the APHELIA seminars, also preparing publications.
APHELIA started as an EU funded project, becoming an International Association in 2018, that eventually became a member of the International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences (CIPSH).
It intervened in the UNESCO project "Broadening the scope of sustainability science" and became relevant in the conceptualization of the new programme BRIDGES (of UNESCO).
Its members have been active in several projects, among which the establishment of UNESCO and CIPSH chairs, new Master and PhD programs and relevant initiatives such as The Jena Declaration.
In 2023, the APHELIA seminar will occur in Macão, Portugal (22-31 March). This will be the 9th edition of this series, and the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the AHELEIA networking.
The Seminar will focus the theme "Adaptation and Transformations: community-based practices", aiming to bridge, from an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary framework, theoretical approaches and academic and community based practices, through time, from prehistory to the present.
The programme will include debates and a later publication that may bring forth some key projects, networks and approaches, attempting not only to describe specific site-based contexts, but to attempt to understand convergences, similarities, possible patterns and trends. We also aim to promote further collaboration across those projects and networks.
The various days of the programme will devote attention to adaptations and transitions from the remote prehistoric past to contemporary contexts, and to specific programs or strategies, such as
BRIDGES (with UNESCO, the International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences and Humanities for the Environment), The Fifth Element project (with the Club of Rome), the TriaLogos project (led by APHELIA), Cultural Landscapes and conflicts (with DYCLAM +), early human adaptive human strategies (with IMQP) and beyond.
During the seminar, participants will also be invited to attend a first General Assembly of the APHELIA International Association for Cultural Integrated Landscape Management.
