Descripción de la actividad

Globally, concerned people today realize that human impacts are profoundly changing the earth and its ecosystems, and many are trying to develop ideas for minimizing the frightening consequences. Most people involved in environmental activism today neither realize nor understand that present-day ecosystems are not the result of recent activities, but of centuries or millennia of human-environment interactions.

Case studies indicate that what many think are 'natural' environments are not natural at all. If this was fully understood, activists and politicians alike might also understand that the impact of actions today will similarly remain unknown for a long time to come. Furthermore, archaeologists have discovered that the links between human action and environmental consequence are usually indirect, 'non-linear' and almost impossible to predict. Ecosystems are non-static, current expressions of longterm, complex interactions between non-living materials and living creatures, and between humans and other organisms. Some of the stops along this continuum provide positive snapshots of human-environment interactions, while some show unfortunate pictures indeed.

The workshop is aimed at providing context for the ever-increasing number of people concerned with human impacts on the environment, by documenting this past through interdisciplinary work: archaeological, historical, geographic, paleo-biological and climatological. There is no way we can avoid affecting our environment. What we can do is try to ensure that our impacts permit our species and others to survive long into the future while enjoying an acceptable quality of life.
