The Potsdam Summer School 2017 is calling for applications!
This year’s Summer School will take place from September 04 through September 13 2017 in Potsdam, Germany. It will address the central question: How can transdisciplinary knowledge production be integrated in inclusive governance processes towards the achievement of sustainable development as in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
With its overarching theme - “Human Environments in a Changing World” - this year’s Potsdam Summer School will continue the transdisciplinary and interactive event series that has been held annually in Potsdam, Germany since 2014. The summer school will provide its participants with a comprehensive look into theories and methods of inclusive governance. They will be engaged in discussions and group work on the key issues. The aim is to bring together talented early-career scientists and young professionals operating in the private sector, governmental agencies and non-governmental organisations from many different parts of the world to discuss frontier (research) questions on future sustainable development. In this context, the Potsdam Summer School provides a unique opportunity for all participants to foster international cooperation and an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. These issues span a multitude of natural and social science disciplines and invite stakeholders from the public and private sector to get involved.
The deadline for submitting applications will be on May 18.
