Sekilas mengenai the 3rd ISSLD 2017

The importance of community participation becomes the key to landscape development today. At the end, academics need to bridge and facilitate the role of the community in order to realize the SDGs and nawacita that can be contained in the form of symposium activities of scientific meetings. This activity is a continuation of the symposium a few years ago, therefore the sustainability of this activity is very important to be managed on a regular basis. Symposium topics will periodically adjusted to the conditions that are relevant at this time.

Landscape development is facing very high acceleration changes, considering the growth and development of a region. As a result of human activities, various negative impacts arose for the landscape development, such as the loss of green open space (GOS) and blue open space (BOS), decreased quality of comfort-related micro-climate, the omission of the potential services such landscapes as well as a variety of others environments problems.

Indeed the development of better landscape is a habitat for humans, vegetation and animals which are expected every corner of the landscape can provide a situation which can provide security and comfort for the occupants therein (dwellers). Role of Landscape Architecture in the world gives a sense of comfort can be realized with role-participation in giving contributions to the development of a sustainable landscape. Sustainable landscape is a landscape that can provide a variety of ecological functions such as elimination of radiation from the sun, reduce air pollution and at the same time provide a social function in the community and economic function independently.

Awareness of the importance of sustainable landscape development has been proclaimed by the United Nations (UN) in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) program at Goal 11th, namely to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable (source: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdg11 ). Unlike the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs, 2000-2015), methods and means for implementation SDGs requires citizen and public participation. A way to ensure the achievement entire Goals and SDGs targets are to involve community groups in the implementation and attainment of SDGs (2016-2030) in accordance with nawacita Indonesian nation.

The importance of community participation becomes the key to landscape development today. At the end, academics need to bridge and facilitate the role of the community in order to realize the SDGs and nawacita that can be contained in the form of symposium activities of scientific meetings. This activity is a continuation of the symposium a few years ago, therefore the sustainability of this activity is very important to be managed on a regular basis.

The 8th EAFES International Congress is coming!

On behalf of the Ecological Society of Japan, and the Local Organizing Committee of the 8th EAFES International Congress, we would like to welcome you all to participate in the 8thEAFES International Congress, April 21st-23rd, 2018, Nagoya, Japan.

The aim of EAFES is to promote and develop ecological science and academic societies in East Asia by organizing symposia, academic meetings, and joint research collaboratively among the Ecological Society of China (ESC), the Ecological Society of Japan (ESJ), and the Ecological Society of Korea (ESK). Recently, the Society of Subtropical Ecology in Taiwan and the ILTER East Asia-Pacific Regional Network also joined the members of the executive committee. The 1st EAFES International Congress was held in Mokpo, South Korea in October 2004 and afterwards biennially. Since then, every International Congress has been coordinated in turn by ESK, ESJ, and ESC: Niigata, Japan (2006); Beijing, P.R. China (2007); Sangju, South Korea (2010); Otsu, Japan (2012); Haikou, P.R. China (2014); and Daegu, South Korea (2016).

The theme of the 8th EAFES International Congress is “The Role of East Asian Ecology in a Changing World”, Focusing on the role of ecology and ecologists in promoting harmonious and sustainable development in the context of global climate change and socio-economic shifts. East Asian countries are facing the challenge of establishing a new perspective in the wake of rapid economic growth with aging populations, deteriorated environments and significant biodiversity loss. Therefore, at this EAFES Congress we expect a wide range of topics on new trends in ecology with innovative technologies as well as paradigm changes including interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches.

We sincerely hope that all participants at the 8th EAFES International Congress will enjoy the meeting not only in terms of academic knowledge and skills, but also through forming further collaborations, connections and friendships.
