Mountain Research and Development journal opened a call for papers in the topic: The Role of Culture in Transformation Towards Sustainable Development in Mountains
Mountain communities are undergoing rapid sociocultural change, caused by drivers such as outmigration, urbanization, and increasing insertion into the market economy. Mountain cultural heritage is under threat. But communities are responding in creative ways. How can we ensure that culture is a source of creativity and empowerment, that it constitutes the roots upon which a global ethics can grow, and that it helps bridge the divides between the individual and the communitarian? MRD is looking for papers that address these questions and others. Full papers are due by 1 February 2019; we welcome prior submission of an abstract. Interested? Read the detailed call for papers!
