Specialized seminar on "The role of technology in the protection of the Bulgarian landscape"

Specialized seminar on the role of technology in the protection of the Bulgarian landscape

December 13, 2023 | 16:00 17:00

Decision makers in the 21st century have the responsibility to address emerging and increasingly complex environmental challenges to protect public health and the environment. One such challenge involves monitoring the landscape and associated changes, along with the role of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgent need for people to have well-preserved nature close by, providing more opportunities for recreation. In addition, social distancing and technological progress necessitate and facilitate modified and innovative educational approaches. They require combined interdisciplinary approaches, as efforts to address one aspect may reveal or create other problems. Integrating innovative approaches like these in higher education will be crucial if we seek to understand and monitor European landscapes within the new Green Deal, especially in the post-COVID-19 era.

Join us on December 13, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. when we will present project GEOLAND – an initiative dedicated to addressing these challenges using state-of-the-art tools and cloud technologies that enable remote data collection. It combines innovative pedagogical and scientific approaches with citizen science strategies, as well as supporting educational institutions in this context.
