Meeting Description: Energy, environment and ecology and the intersecting contributions of specialized languages, discourse, cultures and disciplines

The theoretical study of the environment as a scientific discipline is a relatively recent phenomenon and, as such, still subject to frequent fluctuations. Nevertheless, it is today commonly accepted as referring to the range of biological, chemical and social determinants which affect human beings.

Initially used in the 19th century to designate those sciences related essentially to habitat, during the 1960s, the concept developed into a political movement centered on nature conservation issues. With the millennium, attention shifted to climate change as a source of major concern and resulting media coverage has resulted in energy becoming the focus of debate dynamics in environmental and ecology studies.
