This workshop will address emerging challenges in human-environment interactions. Ecosystem services are under threat due to human activities. We will model feedbacks between the environment and human behaviour with a view to illuminating the mathematical structures that govern interactions. Our goal is to develop methods that can suggest a path forward in improving the interactions between humans and the environment.

The workshop will include some existing case studies where theoretical models have been successful in suggesting a path forward such as vaccination strategies, deployment of antivirals, range corridors for wildlife, restricted shipping speed in areas populated by whales, with a view to expanding the role that mathematics and statistics can play in this endeavour.
