Conference Announcement and Call for Papers

Pathways – Human Dimensions of Fisheries and Wildlife Conference Europe

Conference Theme: Resurrecting the Wild!?

Goslar, Germany – September 16 – 19, 2018

Improving the understanding of human dimensions of natural resource management and conservation through the application of social and economic sciences in a sustainable use and conservation context is being perceived as a major prerequisite for a successful balance of stakeholder interests, as reflected in the United Nations’ recently adapted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in the EU Commission’s “Action Plan for nature, people and the economy.” However, crossing disciplinary boundaries and the effective engagement with the human dimensions of natural resources such as wildlife and fisheries is still uncommon, sometimes accredited to the lack of awareness about the scope and importance of social and economic sciences related to the environment. The Pathways – Human Dimensions of Fisheries and Wildlife Conference aims at bringing researchers and practitioners together that value the contributions of social, economic and social-ecological science to the improvement of natural resource management and conservation. The conference’s key target audiences are scientists, governmental and non-governmental natural resource managers, stakeholder groups, especially land and water users/land owners, and other practitioners in the field. It wants to attract enthusiastic presenters and trainers allowing professionals to participate and engage with like-minded professionals across national, state, and institutional boundaries.

Conference Subjects and Submission Deadlines

We are proposing four major content categories for thematic orientation:

  • Social-ecological systems as a framework for conservation management
  • Management of Human-Wildlife Conflicts: Large Carnivores in Europe (and beyond)
  • Management of Human-Wildlife Conflicts: “Other” Species in Europe (and beyond)
  • Natural Resource and Conservation Stakeholders: Managing Expectations and Engagement

For a detailed description of these subjects, the presentation formats and the submission instructions please visit the conference web site at https://sites.warnercnr.colostate.edu/pathways/ and https://www.nna.niedersachsen.de/pathways/ for further information.

Submission deadlines:

  • Individual abstracts for oral or poster presentations: February 28, 2018
  • All other formats: February 15, 2018

You may contact the organizers at pathways2018 in case of further questions.

An attempt to divert criminal prosecution or is there something to gluing cameras on helmets weakening the helmet.

An attempt to divert criminal prosecution or is there something to gluing cameras on helmets weakening the helmet.

Remember Europe has a different system of enforcement of laws to keep people safe than the US. Where we would sue, Europe regulates and if you violate the regulation you are criminally charged.

The article states that the head injuries to Michael Schumacher the famous race car driver might have been caused by his camera changing the effectiveness of his helmet.

Investigators are exploring the theory that Michael Schumacher’s helmet camera could have caused the helmet to shatter, leading to serious head injuries

Schumacher, an experienced skier, was travelling at a moderate speed when he fell and hit a rock. His skis were new; his bindings have been subsequently tested and were not at fault; he was fully in control of his movements as he left the marked pistes and traversed the patch of snow in-between two groomed runs in Meribel.

But now investigators believe that they may have found a reason for the seriousness of the crash. They think that his helmet camera could have actually worsened the blown, and caused the helmet to shatter into pieces.

Experts from ENSA, the world-renowned ski and climbing academy in the French ski resort of Chamonix, have conducted tests to determine whether the presence of a solid object between a helmet colliding with a rock would weaken the structure.

The helmet smashed – but the camera he had attached to it, in order to record him and his son skiing, was undamaged. The footage, audio and visual, has provided police with crucial information about the crash.

“The helmet completely broke. It was in at least two parts. ENSA analysed the piece of the helmet to check the material, and all was OK,” said a source close to the investigation.

“But why did it explode on impact? Here the camera comes into question. The laboratory has been testing to see if the camera weakened the structure.”

The following, however, maybe the real reason for the statements.

Lawyers had argued that managers of the ski resort might face up to three years in prison because the dangers lurking within the off-piste section were not properly marked.

Off-piste, usually meaning out of bounds or off trail here sections of the ski area where Mr. Schumacher fell might not have met the necessary requirements.

Do Something

Think. Although it is not outside the realm of possibility, it is hard to determine why a camera mounted on a helmet would affect the helmet’s performance. On top of that, ski helmets are designed to break. In fact most helmets only are effective once they break.

Believe me, as you know helmets are a real issue in my opinion. But to blame the injury on the helmet or the camera I think is just a way to dodge a criminal charge or change public opinion about the incident.

SeeMichael Schumacher skiing crash: did helmet camera cause head injuries?

Client dies, be banned from your occupation for five years.

Once you leave the US, you are no longer protected by US laws.

Two ski instructors are facing a five year ban from skiing and a fine for the death of a client in an Avalanche. The ski instructors had taken the client into a known danger zone where the client was caught and died.
