Summer school GEO CEEPUS GeoRegNet: Macro-regonal cooperation in planning sustainable use of regional resources

Ljubljana, Slovenia | 8 July 2019

EUSAIR Facility Point Lead Partner joined the 9th International GeoRegNet Summer School on SUSTAINABLE USE OF REGIONAL RESOURCES with the purpose to present macro-regonal cooperation in planning sustainable use of regional resources and raise awareness among the european youth, as well as of the general public with the reports prepared during the organised lecture.

By simulating the macro-regional cooperation process, students will develop different approaches to understand various issues of managing regional resources that extend into several countries.

From developing good project ideas, which address common challenges that cannot be solved by a single state, but require cooperation of all countries involved to setting up an efficient monitoring system and appropriate argumentation content wise. However on the other hand the emphasis will be also on how to communicate these issues to various publics (citizens/general public, politicians/decision makers, journalists, operatives etc.).

The lecture in organisation of EUSAIR Facility Point will take place in the Information Center of the European Parliament and the European Commission in Slovenia - House of the EU on 8th July 2019.

Follow us to keep up to date with the solutions found by the fresh minds of students from CEEPUS GEOREGNET member Universities and any other students, which are very welcome to join us with prior registration at:

The 9th International GeoRegNet Summer School takes place in Ljubljana, Slovenia between 30 June and 12 July 2019. 

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, as well as the examples of their (un)sustainable use in Central and South-Eastern Europe.
