Workshop: Mediterranean Holocene Climate and Human Societes


A workshop entitled Mediterranean Holocene climate and human societies will be held at Navarino Environmental Observatory, Costa Navarino, Messinia, Greece on 23-25 April 2014.

Registration to the workshop is now closed.  60 scientists from natural sciences, humanities and social sciences from many countries in the world will participate.

The workshop aims at a better understanding of both the drivers behind climate system and behind the coupled society-climate system including its ensuing response and adaptation, in order to understand human capability in readjusting into a changing environment. A further aim is to identify strategies for acquiring the much-needed information to progress our understanding of the global/Mediterranean climate linkages and their interaction with human societies.

The workshop is co-organised by the Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO), the CNRS LSCE & PaleoMex, the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) and the Justus-Liebig University Giessen. Workshop sponsors include PAGES, NEO, the Bolin Centre for Climate Research, Stockholm University, MedLabex, PaleoMex and the Institute of Oceanography, HCMR.
