In the course of our work -- whether that be at a boat launch, in a nature reserve, at an outreach fair, or at someone’s doorstep or office -- we may be exposed to inappropriate remarks or behavior from coworkers and members of the public. This training will equip us with information and tools for dealing with these situations and can facilitate open discussions between supervisors and field crews about harassment and discrimination.

The teleconnections and telecouplings offer conceptual frameworks to evaluate socio-economic and environmental interactions over distances. In order to transition to environmental sustainability, the frameworks are helpful to measure drivers and impacts of the interactions, and to model the interactions from global to local scales. The goal of this conference is to provide, from global to local, interdisciplinary sustainability solutions, which can be covered by the themes:

Global food trade is necessary to balance supply and demand across the world due to regional differences including climate, diet preference, and population growth. In the past decades, global food trade has increased exponentially in trading quantity and commodity types, resulting in drastic impacts on food production and global environment. The integrated telecoupling framework offers novel perspectives for researchers to study food production and consumption changes and the related environmental issues.

The world has become increasingly telecoupled through distant flows of information, matter, energy, organisms, people, money, and technology. Through connecting people and the environment in one place to those in distant places, the flows can have enormous impacts across telecoupled human and natural systems. The telecoupling framework provides novel perspectives for researchers to investigate the mechanisms and impacts of flows on the human and natural systems that are far away.
