A small chronicle from the ClimBEco annual meeting 24-25 August


A warm thank you to all partcipants in the ClimBEco Annual Meeting in Höllviken, August 24-25! After an inspiring and thought-provoking mini-workshop about assertive communcation and the ClimBEco mentorship program, we went on to learning how different research topics and questions tied in to the meeting theme: biodiversity and ecosystem services. Before BECC theme leaders Johan Ekroos and Yann Clough introduced what such research may be about, the scene was set by Karin Perhans from Formas who shared the research council’s view on knowledge gaps and need for research and cooperation. After that, we were amazed to learn that such different research topics as belowground nitrogen cycling, cost-effective measures in the agricultural landscapes, governance (what is really the difference between policy, politics and polity?) and learning implementation all fit in to the concept of ecosystem services as a boundary object in science, and in the cooperation between academia and society. On the second meeting day, we were energized and impressed by PhD student talks and poster presentations, and also by the contributions of our senior participants to comment and give constructive feedback to each presentation! As a reminder of the importance of being aware of one’s own perspective, let's finish by citing a ClimBEco PhD student, Adrian Gustafson: “Nobody lives in the global climate”.
