The sixth summer school in the IMBeR ClimEco series will be held in Yogyakarta in Indonesia from 1-8 August 2018. It will deal with interdisciplinary approaches for sustainable management of marine resources. Because of the complexity of the dynamic social-ecological systems in which they are embedded, as well as the projection that the effects of natural and anthropogenic impacts are likely to intensify, successful marine management requires governance approaches that consider the social and ecological dimensions in tandem. The success of holistic marine governance is underpinned by the provision of interdisciplinary science that integrates both the social and natural sciences, to decision-makers. The IMBeR ClimEco6 Summer School aims to contribute to the development of the next generation of interdisciplinary marine researchers. Drawing on the expertise of lecturers from the natural, social and economic sciences, participants will develop a strong theoretical and applied understanding of each discipline, and how they can be integrated to solve some of the challenges facing the oceans. To complement this, participants will also gain practical skills in science communication and how to operate at the science-policy-society interface, so that they can more effectively influence the decision-making process relating to the marine environment.
The amazing team of lecturers will be present for the duration of the summer school and include: Beth Fulton (Australia), Rashid Sumaila (Canada), Laurent Bopp (France), Christopher Cvitanovic (Australia), Francis Nunoo (Ghana), Priscila Lopes (Brazil), Ingrid van Putten (Australia), Suadi (Indonesia), Jessica Blythe (Canada).
Only about 65 participants will be selected to attend, so apply by 26 March to be considered. More info and the application form are on the website
