al ecology as such", says Giorgos Kallis, ENTITLE coordinator, Professor at the UAB and ICREA researcher.

The project involves eight universities, two NGOs and one SME. Funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union under the Action PEOPLE-Marie Curie Initial Training Networks, it has a budget over 3.5 million euros and a duration of 4 years.

Presentation of the documentary "Toxic Amazon" in Barcelona

One of the ENTITLE specialised courses will be organised by the UAB and will take place from 3 to 6 June in Barcelona. The course "Research Designs and Methods in Political Ecology" is the second one to be taught within the project and includes two activities that are open to the public. One of these is the presentation, on 5 June, at 19.30h at the Palau Als (Sant Pere ms Baix, 55, Barcelona), of the documentary "Toxic Amazon" by Felipe Milanez, with a welcome speech by Joan Martinez Alier, Professor of Economics and Economic History at the UAB. Felipe is a PhD fellow on the project and a journalist specialising in the Amazon, formerly a "National Geographic" editor. The second event is a lecture entitled "Critical physical geography: an application on river restoration" by Dr Rebecca Lave, from Indiana University, which will take place at the ICTA premises (Sala de Graus, Faculty of Science UAB) also on 5 June, at 14.30h.

From 6 to 14 July the first of the network's summer schools will be held in Syros, Greece, under the title "Commons, Conflicts and Disasters", and will include a public talk by Professor Joan Martinez-Alier and Professor Stefania Barca from Coimbra University, Portugal, on "Ecology in Times of Crisis". Training courses and summer schools are open only to the members of the network but all material will be publicly available on the web after the events.

The project is now fully operational and ENTITLE can be consulted on the website of the project: http
