Baltic University Program

Summer Camp for students and graduates "Liveable places and spaces of tomorrow"

Summer Camp “Liveable places and spaces of tomorrow”, Poznan, Poland, 26th -29th of August 2019

What do you want the Baltic Sea Region to be in 2050? How will we live, work, travel, commute and lead our lives in the future?

We are looking for young planners’ ideas on how to address future challenges of the Baltic Sea Region by the spatial planning tools and processes.

VASAB has initiated the Young Planners’ Contest “Liveable Places and Spaces of Tomorrow” to bring together young professionals and give them a chance to create a network of next generation planners and provide them with a chance to express their expectations and perspective of the future of the Baltic Sea Area.

Therefore, young professionals and students are invited to apply for the contest and join the 4-day International Summer Camp in Poznan, Poland, the 26th to the 29th of August 2019. The Summer Camp will take place at the Adam Mickiewicz University – Collegium Geographicum, Institute of Socio-Economic Geography and Spatial Management.

During the International Summer Camp multinational and cross-sectoral teams will be formed to prepare propositions on development of Liveable Places and Spaces of Tomorrow. Teams will be provided with inspiring introductory workshops and mentors will be available through the whole Summer Camp. Best team(s) will be rewarded and invited to present their work to the high-level VASAB Ministerial Meeting.

ESSSR also has a number of associate members. Interested organisations are welcome to enquire about becoming associate members of ESSSR.

ESSSR is pleased to announce the Doctoral Programme on Sustainability  Science.

EduBUP project «Re-thinking of pedagogy for implementing education for sustainable development in the Baltic University Programme countries»

First announcement


Re-thinking of pedagogy for implementing education for sustainable development in the Baltic University Programme countries
The project is being carried out by the Baltic University Programme and SWEDESD at Uppsala University with financial support from the Swedish Institute

Dear BUP colleagues,220px The Baltic University Programme logo

We would like to invite you to participate in the EduBUP project  which is aimed to address university teachers in the Baltic University Programme countries and focused on the personal devlopment of each specific teacher, as well as transformations at university level (on implementing Education for Sustainable Developmetn (ESD) by changing the curriculum and teaching and learning methods).The project will illustrate pedagogical principles and processes that need to be integrated in teaching and learning to achieve ESD learning principles.

The Change project Approachwill be used for the EduBUP project. The approach consists of several phases: Preparatory Phase in which participants develop a pre-course assignment which highlights what needs to be changed;  The First Regional Workshop (Workshop 1) during which the project groups and projects titles are defined; Intermediate  Consolidation Phase when participants work on the projects at their respective universities; and  The Second Regional Workshop(Workshop 2) when the reports on the project progress are to be presented and peer reviewed.

Participants will need to allocate certain time for taking part in two workshops and working with the projects. We estimate that full participation in the course would be equal to 10 working days including workshops 1 and 2. After successful participation in the whole course the certificate confirming participating in 20-day course will be awarded.

Application process:
Application is open to a team of  2 or more persons from the same insitution/ faculty/ etc, not for the individuals because it is important to work in collaboration in order to implement changes. Gaining skills of team building, groups dynamics, improvement skills for cooperation and communication will be added values of participation.The First Regional Workshop (Workshop 1) will be held  28-30 January, Tallinn, Estonia

Good knowledge of English is a requirement
Deadline: 10 December 2018. The application should be sent to :  Ця електронна адреса захищена від спам-ботів, Вам потрібно включити JavaScript для перегляду
