Convocatoria – Revista Colombiana de Geografía : The cities and the global environmental change

Cuadernos de Geografía: Revista Colombiana de Geografía, a well-positioned scientific journal in the Latin America context, organizes special issues around subjects positioned at the forefront of geographical science. This is the eighth issue dedicated to a specific theme and with it, we would to encourage the debate on the next challenges of our society in the coming decades as a result of different forms of incidence of global environmental change: global warming -atmospheric and oceanic-, climate change, rise of the sea level, acidification of the oceans, change in the land cover, reduction of ecosystems, decrease in biological diversity…

We consider that these changes are restructuring the distribution of goods and environmental services (water, food, energy…); the geopolitics (and the local, regional and national politics); the economy (and its flows); the population dynamics (i.e. the migration); the social relationships; and even the culture and the ideas about the nature or the society. But these challenges are also highly concentrated in the cities because: one, the population resides today mainly in the cities and that have the tendency to growth; and two, the economic activities are essentially urban and the rural dynamics depends, increasingly, of the conditions defined in the cities.

We call to geographers, but too to the social, physical and humanities scholars, to contribute in this special issue. We will receive research articles, theoretical essays and bibliographical reviews on the subject.
