An international group of leading microbiologists, including UvA professor Jef Huisman, have issued a warning that climate change will have a major impact on microorganisms with cascading effects on ecosystems, agriculture and human health.
Travelling from A to B can influence how we feel about our cities, especially in times when we seem to increasingly live in social and spatial bubbles. How is this for children in Dutch cities? Does travelling independently help them to know their environment better? UvA researchers launch a new project around this theme in cooperation with the NEMO Science Museum.
How can we work together to make our cities better? From 17-23 June, the WeMakeThe.City festival will celebrate urban living while also adressing important challenges. A number of resaerchers from the UvA's centre for Urban Studies will be involved in a wide range of conferences, debates and seminars.
