Welcome to Switzerland, welcome to Bern!
The University of Bern has a long tradition in environmental and climate studies. The Institute of History and the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research are therefore proud to host to the 12th Conference of the ESEH.
Bern will be the first conference site since the establishment of the biennial ESEH conferences that is close to the Alps or to mountainous regions in general. Drawing from its closeness to mountainous regions Bern invites for a conference on «Mountains and Plains», a topic enabling approaches from various disciplines possible.
This paramount topic enables numerous approaches from various disciplines.
