Join the Summer School on Sustainable Futures in the Baltic Sea Region

We are looking for ideas of young planners and regional developers (students and practitioners) on sustainable futures in the Baltic Sea Region. How should a desired Baltic Sea Region look like by 2040? How do we envision its urban networks and settlement structure? Its physical and digital connectivity? The management of its ‘commons’ that ensure a good quality of life? And how do we envision its maritime and spatial planning by 2040? What do we wish to look different from today?

The University of Greifswald initiates a Summer School for Young Planners and Regional Developers on “Sustainable Futures for the Baltic Sea Region” jointly with VASAB. The Summer School will bring together young professionals and students and give them a chance to create a network of next-generation planners by discussing their expectations and perspectives for the future of the Baltic Sea Region. Young professionals and students from the Baltic Sea Region are most warmly invited to apply to join the 5-day International Summer School in Greifswald, Germany, from August 22 to 26, 2022. The Summer School will take place at the University of Greifswald – Institute of Geography and Geology.

During the Summer School, international, multi-disciplinary teams will develop ideas on sustainable futures in the Baltic Sea Region. Teams will be provided with inspiring introductory workshops. Networking will be fostered by planned social events (e.g., a dragon boat tour in the bay of Greifswald). The best team(s) will be rewarded and invited to present their work at a high-level VASAB conference in spring 2023.
