On July 1-5, 2019, Dr. Rebecca Kariuki and Dr. Claudia Capitani attended the 10th IALE World Congress in Milan, Italy. They ran a symposium titled ‘Reconstructing past landscapes to simulate future sustainable scenarios through multidisciplinary approaches’. In introducing the symposium, they presented their work in East Africa whose focus is on multidisciplinary approaches of assessing past, present and future East African landscapes, climates and societies. Other talks discussed at the symposium were case studies in Europe, Asia and South America which integrated interdisciplinary approaches including archaeology, historical ecology and scenario planning.
