Introduction to SURE Latin America Chapter
The Brazilian Chapter of the Society for Urban Ecology (SURE-BR) was proposed and approved during the 1st World SURE Congress at the General Assembly in the Berlin in July 2013. It was enlarged to the Chapter Latin America during the „First International Symposium on Urban Ecology of the Society in Latin America“ in 2015.
The main goal of the Latin America Chapter is to promote Urban Ecology education and research, as well as work with cities and decision makers to apply ecosystem approach in planning, design and programs development.
We have an interdisciplinary Executive Committee that had the founding workshop at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) in February 2014.
