Summer and Other Environmental Programs
The Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program has a mission to train new generations of environmental leaders around the globe, and to foster on-going international collaboration and partnerships among Beahrs ELP Alumni their institutions and U.C. Berkeley through a dynamic Alumni Network and Satellite Centers.
As part of the Executive and International Programs at the Goldman School of Public Policy, the Executive Environmental Program is a cooperative effort with the Mexican government geared to increasing the capabilities of Mexico’s environmental agencies.
The overall goal of the summer field program is to serve as an introduction to natural resource management as a field of scientific and professional work. Students in the program study the ecology of the Sierra Nevada, apply environmental monitoring and measurement techniques, and explore first-hand the management of forests, watersheds, and firesheds. By participating in the program students acquire a broad working knowledge of the concepts and techniques which foresters, land managers and environmental scientists use in their work. Studying these subjects in a field setting is the best way to learn about the ecology and management of forest and grassland ecosystems.
IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. Many of IIASA's National Member Organizations (NMOs) provide special grants to enable young scientists from their countries, or foreign students studying in their country, to participate in the program. From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute’s Research Programs under the guidance of IIASA scientific staff.
Next Global Sustainability Summer School: Summer of 2012 in Potsdam, Germany.
Offered in cooperation with Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), Mercator Foundation and Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS)
Sustainability in natural and social environments is considered from a complex systems perspective; topics change annually. The program consists of lectures, interactive sessions and group discussions. Participants are expected to attend for the entire duration. All activities will be conducted in English. Applicants are welcome from all countries. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Enrollment is limited.
