First Potsdam Summer School: „Arctic in the Anthropocene“

Date: 
Mo, 06/23/2014 bis Fr, 07/04/2014

Under the overarching theme “Arctic in the Anthropocene”, this two-week interdisciplinary and interactive event running from 23 June to 4 July 2014 will be the first in a series of Potsdam Summer Schools to be held annually. The goal is to bring together early-career scientists and young professionals from research departments, governmental and non-governmental agencies and organisations, as well as the private sector from all around the world. Participants will deal with global challenges and address urgent questions on how to shape sustainable futures in the Arctic and beyond from a scientific and socioeconomic point of view.

In partnership with the City of Potsdam, the 2014 Potsdam Summer School will be jointly conducted by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), and the University of Potsdam. Experts, stakeholders, and guest lecturers from national and international institutes and organisations will contribute high level knowledge to the Summer School programme.
