Advanced Course: Environmental Management on Islands – Challenges and Sustainability
Islands are special cases for Sustainable Development. Methodologically and scientifically, islands are ideal ‘laboratories’ for sustainable landscape stewardship. Islands are unique in both attractiveness and climate vulnerability, they are relatively isolated and ‘on their own’ compared to mainland areas, yet they are also more dependent and need to be well connected to other areas more than mainland areas. This Winter School/Advanced Course is aimed at combining all these different perspective, focusing on Gran Canaria.
