The 3rd International School on Emergy Accounting at Ca' Foscari University in Venice (May 21 - 25, 2018) brings together students and researchers coming from a variety of disciplines, including ecology, chemistry, biology, physics, environmental science and engineering, economics, social and political sciences, with the aim of exploring current developments of Emergy science and its application to human and environmental systems.
The analysis of human and environmental systems requires skills, tools, languages, approaches and methodologies pertaining to the systemic aspects that characterize complex systems. The problems generated by the interaction between human activities and the environment, both at local and global scales, further supports the urgent need to transfer suitable and effective scientific approaches to all decision-making processes dealing with complex technology-based and environmental systems, and in general with all the actions inspired by the concept of Sustainability. Emergy Accounting provides a comprehensive integrated methodology that puts together scientific, environmental and socio-economic aspects in the analysis of a system.
The course will include both plenary lectures and discussion of case studies by different working groups, led by Instructor Assistants. Depending on the number of participants, a short workshop on the use of software SCALEM for matching LCA and Emergy analysis is also under consideration.
All seminars will take place at the San Giobbe campus (Room 3B) at Ca' Foscari University in Venice
