Recently, resilience in socio-ecological systems has received attention from academic and public communities as a core concept in describing sustainability. The symposium titled “Resilience Thinking in a Changing World” is organized in order to disseminate this notion. Renowned speakers from around the world are invited to present their
innovative works in the area of eco-resilience. The symposium is designed to share new ideas and build tight networks among scientists, engineers, policy makers, and anyone interested in sustainability.
