ALTER-Net's 10th Summer School gets underway in Peyresq
ALTER-Net's 10th Summer School has begun in Peyresq, France, and judging from the photos posted on our Photoblog and on Twitter (#alternetsummerschool), things are in full swing beneath beautiful September skies. There are 28 students from this year's school, most from Europe with two students from South America. You can read biographies of students, speakers and tutors.
ALTER-Net Summer Schools have been running since 2006 and offer students a unique opportunity to learn about current issues in biodiversity and ecosystem services. Open to young graduate and post-graduate scientists from both within and outside the network partners, the Summer School provides an innovative atmosphere for thinking about and resolving the sustainability challenges that society is currently facing. Our Summer School aims at contributing to the durable integration and spread of excellence within and beyond the network, with a view to promoting interdisciplinary approaches.
