Une approche centrée sur les problèmes pour les sciences de l'environnement

By Kati Berninger, Petri Tapio, Markku Lehtonen and Risto Willamo


As a contribution to the definition of environmental sciences, this article describes an interdisciplinary problem-oriented approach for studying environmental problems. It can be used both in research and in education. Problem orientation can be expressed in three questions: a) Why are there environmental problems, b) what are their characteristics, and c) in which ways can they be mitigated? The fundamental part of the approach is the systematic study of each environmental question. In order to frame the study, a conceptual framework the Environmental Protection Process framework (EPP), which describes the process of environmental protection from the creation of environmental problems to their possible solutions is presented and illustrated through examples on transport and climate change issues
