Global environmental changes, such as increasing carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere or habitat transformations, are driven by social, economic and political changes in the human system (World drivers) as well as by biophysical, chemical and structural changes in the earth system (Earth drivers). The various drivers of global change often act simultaneously, but at different spatial and temporal scales, creating potential for interactions and feedbacks among the different drivers. Their impacts are thus hard to predict.

The conference examines the impacts of these interacting drivers on biodiversity and ecosystem processes, and the services they provide, and how this affects human societies at local, regional and global levels.
