STRANIAK ACADEMY 2023:
TACKLING PLASTIC POLLUTION IN OCEANS AND RIVERS
SUMMER SCHOOL & RESEARCH LAB in Debeli RTIČ, SLOVENIA
Application deadline prolonged until 15th of August!
After a 3-year break the Straniak Academy is back with a new concept and a new thematic focus! Increasing plastic pollution of oceans and rivers not only severely threatens ecosystems, but also undermines the full enjoyment of human rights. Against this backdrop, this year’s edition of the Straniak Academy focuses on plastic pollution in oceans and rivers. During six days, from 10th until 16th September 2023, participants will be able to take part in the CMS! Closing Conference with speakers from academia (law and sciences), politics, and civil society organisations, as well as develop own projects in a research lab.
