Recent Challenges of the Ecosystems Services Approach from an Interdisciplinary Point of View

terms. This may be illustrated by the example of fire regimes, which are characteristic of the dynamics of North America’s natural yellow pine forests ( Hutto 2008 ). The forest fires were considered negative for humans, their material goods and forestry use, so smaller fires were suppressed leading to decreasing diversity of the spatial mosaic of different population ages and succession stages formed under natural conditions. At the same time, restrictive fire management led to the accumulation of fuel material from dead and dry organic matter, increasing stock

Choreographies of entrepreneurship. How different formats of co-presence are combined to facilitate knowledge creation in seed accelerator programs

relational distance 2.1 Co-presence: initiating open and contingent social dynamics What are the social effects of physical co-presence? Goffman (1963: 17) defines co-presence as follows: “Persons must sense that they are close enough to be perceived in whatever they are doing, including their experiencing of others, and close enough to be perceived in this sensing of being perceived”. This quote illustrates that physical co-presence itself has no social consequences. Yet it provides a physical setting in space that allows the conscious awareness of the presence of

Image and implementation of sustainable urban development: Showcase projects and other projects in Freiburg, Heidelberg and Tübingen, Germany

, social diversity and local supply to support the pillar of social sustainability, and local value creation and employment for the economic pillar of sustainability (see Table 2 ). Beyond the individual measures, the urban structure of sustainable urban development projects has the aim of allowing a variety and mix of functions, social structures and designs. Thus, our analysis focuses on the degree to which the urban development projects emphasise all three pillars of sustainability. Based on the criteria suggested by Breuer (2013) , we deduced characteristic

Building Resilient Regions: Complex Adaptive Systems and the Role of Policy Intervention

1 Introduction The notion of resilience is being utilised by an increasing number of authors keen to understand the dynamics of local and regional economies and particularly how they deal with economic shocks and recessionary crises (see, for example, Christopherson/Michie/Tyler 2010 ; Pendall/Foster/Cowell 2010 ; Hill/St. Clair/Wial et al. 2011 ). Most people have an intuitive notion of what resilience means: the capacity to sustain a shock, recover, and continue to function and, more generally, cope with change ( Walker/Holling/Carpenter et al. 2004 : 5

Urban Citizenship and the Spatial Encounter between Turkish Migrants and Syrian Refugees in Berlin

existing inclusion/exclusion dynamics in the urban space. While numerous works have examined the relationship between Turkish migrants and urban regeneration, especially in the German context, their perceptions about other migrant groups have yet to be analyzed. Moreover, the implications of encounters between these two different migrant groups for the construction and meaning of (urban) citizenship have been mostly overlooked. Any attempt to close this gap requires making an "analytical distinction between Long-term residents and Newcomers [...] because the length of

Regional Economic Resilience: European Experiences and Policy Issues

diversity and higher levels of assortativity within their networks may demonstrate higher economic performance in the short-term but face challenges due to lower levels of adaptability in times of crises within the dominant industries (similar to arguments in Hassink 2009 ). The 'smart specialisation' strategy as a guideline for EU Structural Funds Operational Programs is intended to support regions to find this narrow line between efficient specialisation and necessary diversification along technological platforms and related industries by requiring regionally specific
