Univ.-Prof. Dr. Jürgen Breuste has been awarded the Sustainability Science Award of the Ecological Society of America 2019

Each year, the Sustainability Science Award of the Ecological Society of America is presented to authors of internationally significant peer-reviewed publications, who have been exemplary contributors to sustainability challenges over the past five years.

Der Preis bestätigt, dass die Anwendung von Nachhaltigkeitswissenschaft durch die Verknüpfung von ökologischer Wissenschaft mit Fortschritten in anderen biophysikalischen Disziplinen, Ingenieurwissenschaften, Sozialwissenschaften (z. B. Wirtschaftswissenschaften, Anthropologie, Politikwissenschaften und Governance) und anderen Bereichen neue Wege eröffnet. Der Preis würdigt risikoreichere Ideen, die noch nicht vollständig getestet wurden, aber vielversprechend für eine nachhaltige Welt sind.

Der Preis würdigt auch die Beiträge und Lösungsansätze, die Urban Ecology  (Stadtökologie) als neue interdisziplinäre Wissenschaft, als Science of Cities im „Urbanozän“, einem Zeitalter in dem die Mehrzahl der Weltbevölkerung in Städten lebt, leistet. An der Paris Lodron Universität Salzburg wird sie in einer Arbeitsgruppe unter Leitung von Univ.-Prof. Dr. Breuste im Fachbereich Geographie und Geologie vertreten, der damit auch Exzellenz in der Mitwirkung an internationalen Forschungsfragen der Nachhaltigkeit im Bereich der Städte bestätig wird.

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Breuste ist als Mitautor der Publikation

McPhearson T, Pickett STA; Grimm NB, Niemelä J, Alberti M, Elmqvist T, Weber C, Haase D, Breuste J, Qureshi S (2016) Advancing Urban Ecology toward a Science of Cities. BioScience, 66 (3):198–212, https://doi.org/10.1093/biosci/biw002

Die Auszeichnung erfolgt für hervorragende Beiträge zur Ökologie in Bezug auf Neuentdeckungen, Lehre, Nachhaltigkeit, Vielfalt und lebenslanges berufliches Lernen. Die Preisverleihung findet am Montag, dem 12. August, um 8.00 Uhr im Ballsaal C des Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky statt (s.a. https://www.esa.org/.../2019/.../ecological-society-of-america-ann.).
