PE&RC Day 2018 - The Social Network of Nature
Thursday 8 November 2018
Human social networks are currently more visible than ever due to the existence of social media. Yet social networks are not a human invention; they exist all around us in nature. From plants that use a thread-like fungus to warn each other about predators, to coral reefs that form sustainable recycling systems; in all natural systems organisms share information and resources to their own benefit and that of the network. On the PE&RC day 2018 we would like you to meet the scientists who discover and unravel the connections in nature’s social networks. We will take a look into the amazing functionality and connectivity of these natural networks and how we can learn from them to optimise our own man-made networks.
Symposium Dier of Ding (in Dutch)
Zaterdag 24 november 2018
Is dierethiek een blinde vlek in het natuurbeheer? Of is in dit werkveld vooral de instandhouding van populaties en levensgemeenschappen van belang en hoeven natuurbeheerders geen rekening te houden met het wel en wee van individuele dieren? Over deze vragen organiseert de Heimans en Thijsse Stichting onder voorzitterschap van Frank Berendse een prikkelend symposium met als sprekers: Frans de Waal, internationaal vermaard primatoloog, Floris van den Berg, filosoof, en Esther Ouwenhand, politica.
