ENSEC Modules

The major challenge concerns the global environmental change, focusing on the interactions between ecosystems and mankind, the effects of global environmental change on environmental degradation, the effects of increasing social request for resources, ecosystem services, and environmental goods. The relevant objects of environmental security are complex, adaptive systems with two main components – the social, characterized by human intent, and the ecological, rising without intent; these have interacted historically, and society strongly determines the landscape ecological components of such systems (Zurlini, Müller, 2008).

In the 10 presented Modules, we intend to give you a broad presentation and, in some aspects, detailed knowledge of Environment Security topics, nowadays challenges and particular subjects related to the management of a rising threat to our planet. Any person can register in ENSEC platform and attend any or all the Modules.
