CSRio Seminar: Are new frameworks needed? Discussion in the scope of environmental projects

Frameworks are tools that unite words, ideas and information about a research topic. The construction of a concept, approach, theory or method may involve the elaboration of one or several frameworks.

In this seminar, the PhD in Environmental Sciences and CSRio coordinator, Agnieszka Latawiec, and the geographer and PhD student in Geography, Aline Rodrigues, will present and discuss the development of some frameworks and the utility (or not) of them related to ecosystem services and to Nature-Based Solutions (SbN).

The presentation will take place on October 22, 2020 (Thursday), from 17:00 to 19:00 by videoconference on the link below:
