Call for Applications: The Global Environments Summer Academy 2014

Deadline: 15 January 2014
The Global Diversity Foundation hereby announces the GESA2014–  the fourth Global Environments  Summer Academy, held in collaboration with the Centre for Development and Environment of  the University of Bern (Switzerland) between 26 July and 15 August 2014.

Since 2011, Global Diversity Foundation has organised Global Environments Summer Academy to broaden and deepen the knowledge, networking and  communication skills of activists, postgraduate students and professionals who are concerned  about the human dimensions of environmental challenges. The Academy spans local to global  scales and diverse ecosystems, exploring the most critical contemporary environmental  issues from multiple perspectives including biocultural diversity, environmental history,  political ecology, sustainability studies and personal activism.

Accompanied by international and multidisciplinary resource people, participants are  encouraged to expand their understandings of policy, develop academic insights and  competence, and transcend disciplinary and place-based boundaries. Resource people and fellow participants offer personalised support in research design, conceptual and theoretical  frameworks, fieldwork methods and data analysis throughout the course.

The course convenors select 18-21 participants from around the world who have the capacity  to become future environmental leaders in academic, civil society, private sector or  government institutions.

Applications are invited  from English-fluent activists, postgraduate  students and professionals in the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences – as well as  from those working in advocacy, law, media or policy – who focus on the relationship of  environment and society.
