Announcement follows

The Rachel Carson Center and the Global Diversity Foundation announce GESA 2013:
the third Global Environments Summer Academy on Socio-ecological Interactions in a Dynamic World, to be held at the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) of the University of Bern, between 27 July and 18 August 2013.

Interested students are invited to complete the application form and upload their CV and personal statement on the application webform before 15 January 2013.

Since 2011, GDF has organised the yearly Global Environments Summer Academy (GESA) in collaboration with the Rachel Carson Centre in Munich. The Academy is designed to broaden and deepen the knowledge, networking, and communication skills of postgraduate students and professionals who are concerned about the human dimensions of environmental challenges. The GESA website provides an overview of previous years’ courses, including course themes, a blog, videos, photos and alumni profiles.

Every year the course focuses on different themes within the broad concern of human dimensions of global environmental change. The course 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 an international and multidisciplinary faculty, participants are encouraged to expand their understandings of policy, develop their academic insight and competence, and transcend their disciplinary and place-based boundaries. Resource persons and fellow participants offer personalised support in research design, conceptual frameworks, fieldwork methods and data analysis throughout the course.

The course convenors select 18-20 Masters/PhD students or professionals from around the world who have the capacity to become future environmental leaders in academic, civil society, corporate or governmental institutions. We invite applications from students in the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences – as well as from postgraduates already working in advocacy, law, media or policy – who focus on the relationship between environment and society.

The cost of the Academy is €1750, inclusive of accommodation, tuition, field trips, insurance and materials, but excluding local and international travel, meals and other living costs. Some partial scholarships will be available to cover travel, living costs and the course fee.
