Human Ecology no. 28 was published in the Spring of 2018 in time for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. It highlights several threats to the environment which can cause serious problems for mankind. But it also tries to show what can – or should – be done to improve the life of humans all over the world. To solve a problem one has to be aware that there is a problem! Many people live far from the natural environment and their knowledge and understanding is weak. Where is the food coming from? Why is the water drying up? What can I do as an individual when I don’t know the consequences of my action? Resilience in people must be to be able to cope with a future world where climate change and pollution soon can’t be reversed.
Human Ecology no. 27 was recently published in mid-2016. The issue is themed around the concept of Waste, with contributions from volunteers, artists and academics working towards mitigating the harmful impact of man-made materials on ecosystems. Divided into two parts, the journal highlights the range of problems we face, as well as the potential solutions.
Human Ecology No. 24 was published to coincide with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held in Perth, Australia in October 2011. It includes articles on human ecology in the South Pacific and on human ecology in education and practice.
Human Ecology No. 23 includes several papers from the 2009 Manchester Conference on Human Ecology for an Urbanising World organised by CHEC and the German Society for Human Ecology. It includes keynote papers from Anna Tibaijuka, the then UN Under-Secretary and Executive Director for UN Habitat and CHEC Hon President, Levi Oguike.
