From 21 August 2022 08:00 to 31 August 2022 17:00
Ethno Village Čardaci, Vitez, Bosnia and Herzegovina
The 17th International Summer School will be organized by the Sarajevo-based organisation REIC in collaboration with the financial support of the Central European Initiative (CEI).
The 17th International Summer School will thematically address the challenges of climate change and the transition towards sustainable and clean energy. Climate change adaptation and mitigation as a global issue must be addressed at a regional level rather than just state level.
Participants will be led through a way of thinking from global to local. In this sense, participants will be able to understand key global concepts regarding low emission development and which tools on the local level should be developed. The Cooperation Activity will cover various topics ranging from environmental problems to socio-economic, legal, and technological issues related to clean energy and climate change.
The program will consist of various educational activities that will be presented in the format of lectures, group work, workshops, and study visits. At the beginning, participants will be divided into groups (up to five) and facilitated to work together on a specific case study. Participants will have the opportunity to brainstorm and develop governance programs around the selected case study. Each group will deliver and present a paper, which may be used as a good basis for future projects and initiatives since it will rely on real-life case studies.
In order to stimulate students to be creative, one full-day site visit to renewable energy facilities (solar, biomass, geothermal, and small HPP) will be organized.
There is no participation fee.
The organizer will provide full fellowship for all 20 participants. The full fellowship includes costs of full board accommodation, refreshments and the study visit. Only transportation costs are the responsibility of the participants.
The targeted number of participants is 20.
We would appreciate it if you disseminated the information to potential participants.
