9th International GeoRegNet Summer School -

SUSTAINABLE USE OF REGIONAL RESOURCES

Ljubljana, 30. 6. – 12. 7. 2019

Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana

 

 

What are the main topics?

  • Regional resources: theoretical approaches, typology;
  • Regional resources and sustainable development: trends, potentials and policies;
  • The impact of climate changes on the use of regional resources;
  • The impact of geopolitical changes on the use of regional resources;
  • (Un)sustainable use of regional resources in Central and Southeast Europe;

The summer school will focus on the use of regional resources in the context of sustainable development. It will highlight some geographical processes (e.g. aging, depopulation, land abandonment, degraded areas, overgrowing of agricultural land on one hand and processes of intensified use on the other hand) affecting the use of regional resources. The influence of wider regional and global context on the sustainable use of regional resources will also be addressed.  Examples of (un)sustainable use of regional resources from Central and South-Eastern Europe will be presented.

  • 12 days of lectures, seminars, practical work, field seminars/work;
  • 5 ECTS for active participation (a certificate will be issued at the end of summer school);
  • A tour of Ljubljana;

  • 296€ of pocket money (except Slovene students);
  • 2 full-day field trips (extra charge may apply).
