Content: Introduction to the history of nature conservation. Methods: improved skills in handling and contextualizing primary and secondary sources; improved skills in oral and written presentations.

Organized nature conservation emerged at the turn of the 20th century and quickly found a strong support. Was it a reaction to the advancing destruction of nature or do other factors have to be taken into account? Who was behind nature conservation and which strategies were adopted and with what success? How did nature conservation change the social perception of nature, the actions of people and the design of institutions?

Continuous assessment, regular and active participation in discussions, participation in the workshop, oral and written contributions.
