Article
Full-text available
Environmental management has increasingly focused on promoting social engagement in biodiversity and ecosystem services conservation as a way to foster sustainability. However, a critical challenge that still remains is the adequate implementation of strategies of communication, education, and participation (CEPA) oriented to reconnect the social a...

Food is essential to people and is one of the main ways in which people are connected to the world’s ecosystems. However, food systems often cause ecosystem degradation and produce ill-health, which has generated increasing calls to transform food systems to be more sustainable. The Swedish food system is currently undergoing substantial change. A...
Article
Full-text available
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are described as integrated and indivisible, where sustainability challenges must be addressed across sectors and scales to achieve global-level sustainability. However, SDG monitoring mostly focuses on tracking progress at national-levels, for each goal individually. This approach ignores lo...
Preprint
Global sustainability targets demand transformative changes. Nature-based solutions (NbS) are gaining traction in science and policy, but their potential for transformative change remains unexplored. We provide a framework to evaluate how NbS contribute to transformative change and apply it to 93 NbS from mountain social-ecological systems (SES). T...

ABSTRACT Indigenous peoples are key actors for environmental management because they hold valuable indigenous and local knowledge (ILK) for the sustainable stewardship of nature. However, the consideration of ILK in environmental management is still limited. We explore how environmen- tal government institutions in Colombia have involved indigenous...
Article
Full-text available
The ecosystem services (ES) approach has been introduced in environmental policies and management to serve as a link between nature and society. Communication, education, and participation actions (CEPA) have the potential to facilitate this link. In this research, we evaluated how CEPA have been implemented in biodiversity conservation projects th...
Article
Full-text available
The Anthropocene presents a set of interlinked sustainability challenges for humanity. The United Nations 2030 Agenda has identified 17 specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a way to confront these challenges. However, local initiatives have long been addressing issues connected to these goals in a myriad of diverse and innovative ways....
Article
Full-text available
Scenario development helps people think about a broad variety of possible futures; however, the global environmental change community has thus far developed few positive scenarios for the future of the planet and humanity. Those that have been developed tend to focus on the role of a few common, large-scale external drivers, such as technology or e...
Article
Full-text available
Scenario development has been recognized as a potential method to explore future change and stimulate a reflective process that can contribute to more informed decision-making. The assessment process under IPBES (the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) has how-ever shown that the current predominantly b...
Article
Full-text available
The conventional dominant global agri-food system is a main driver in the Anthropocene: food production entails profound global environmental changes from greenhouse gas emissions to biodiversity loss, and shifting diets further impact planetary and human health. Innovative approaches are needed to shift towards more sustainable, equitable and heal...
Article
Full-text available
Costa Rica is internationally recognized for its abundant biodiversity and being a leader in the promotion of education strategies for biodiversity conservation. We interviewed staff from 16 institutions developing key environmental communication, education, and participation projects for biodiversity conservation in the country. Through content an...
Chapter
Full-text available
Environmental educators face the challenge of creating learning experiences that help people develop knowledge, values, and skills that may inspire them to become actively involved in dealing with the social and environmental issues in their communities. This chapter explores social theatre as one instrument for achieving that goal.
Book
Full-text available
At present, several studies have warned of the serious environmental crisis caused by the exceeding of ecological limits, including biodiversity loss. Biodiversity is essential for life; however, it has been drastically reduced due to the impact of human activities on ecosystems during the past 50 years. Biodiversity conservation is totally depend...
Article
Full-text available
The history of the Environmental Education and interpretation in Costa Rica goes back to the 70s, when the develop- ment of the international policies in these areas occurred. We present a description of the evolution of these disciplines from its origins until now, from a four-levels approach: (1) the National System of Conservation Areas, (2) the...
Article
Conservation education and outreach programs are a key approach to promote public understanding of the importance of biodiversity conservation. We reviewed 85 biodiversity conservation projects supported by the Spanish Ministry of Environment's Biodiversity Foundation. Through content analysis and descriptive statistics, we examined how the project...

RESUMEN En las últimas décadas proliferan muchos procesos de participación en la gestión ambiental pero es necesario estudiar si mejoran las competencias sociales de sus agentes implicados. Este trabajo analiza si dichos espacios de participación son percibidos como procesos de aprendizaje. Los datos son recogidos a través de un Panel Delphi (n=5)...
Article
Full-text available
The origin of the Environmental Education Equipments (EqEEs) dates from the late 70´s and is linked to natural environment and environmental interpretation in protected areas. Since then, they have evolved into a powerful resource for social education for sustainability. We recognize them as non-formal education initiatives, with their own faciliti...

Question
Hi! I am perfoming a social network analysis using UCINET and trying to calculate Bonacich´s power (beta<0). However, it is not clear for me (according to the literature I have revised) how the outputs of UCINET should be interpretated. Just looking at the absolute values -as we do with Bonacich´s centrality- or taking negative scores into account. Thank you very much in advance for your responses.
