In collaboration with our journal the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin invites researchers to submit their papers for the special issue People and Nature.

The climate crisis and the loss of biodiversity are among the greatest challenges of our time. To address these problems, we must – together as a society, but also each and every one of us – answer the question „How do we want to live with nature?”. Therefore, understanding individual and collective perspectives on nature are fundamental, as they decisively shape perception, evaluation and action towards nature. Within this perspective, developing new techniques for environmental communication and education are essential to foster social change towards a constructive relationship between man and nature.
This special issues aims to take a broad inter- and transdisciplinary view of the socio-cultural and ecological aspects of the relationship between people and their natural environment focusing on topics, such as:
- inter- and transdisciplinary collaborations within social-ecological research projects and knowledge transfer
- individual perspectives on nature in regard to nature conservation as part of everyday life
- human-nature relationships of different audiences and/or in relation to different environments, e.g. rural and urban nature
- human-nature conceptualizations on different levels of public discourse: legal, political, social and cultural frameworks
- social innovation in biodiversity research, e.g. citizen science
- digital innovation in environmental communication and knowledge transfer
