    Vom 07.10.-16.06.2022 findet die Summer School "Planetary Health" statt.

    Climate change is a major global challenge and the biggest threat to health of the century. While geographic differences exist across regions creative solutions can be found in transdisciplinary and transformative collaboration.

    The summer school welcomes participants from a wide range of backgrounds to share perspectives from Eastern Africa as well as Europe and explore different global as well as local challenges in the context of climate change and other planetary boundaries. By applying a planetary health lens we will identify solutions for mitigation and adaptation relevant in European and African contexts.

    The summer school offers a mix of educational methodologies and activities inside and outside the classroom with local and international experts, empowering participants to become agents of change and develop their own projects for transformative change. We aim to help students gain and develop knowledge, attitude, skills and confidence.


    Participation is free of cost, including lunch and resfreshments during breaks and expenses for excursions. The number of participant seats is limited. Therefore, we reserve the right to make a selection and to raise a cancellation fee of 80 €, in case of cancellation after August 31, 2022. 

    We invite students, scientists & practitioners of all climate, environment & health-related disciplines to send an application including

    • a CV
    • a motivational letter with a short description of a project idea on a possible (small) project that you would like to further develop throughout the summer school
    • by planetaryhealth@ukw.de (in one PDF document) 
    • until July 17th, 2022.
