Coastal and Marine Management International Summer School - Baltic Sea and North Sea

Location: Rostock-Warnemünde, Germany
Event Type: Training Course
Event Date: 2005-09-05    
End Date: 2005-09-17

Event Description:

During the past decades coastal zones have experienced a tremendous increase in population and utilisation by men. It is estimated that more than half of the world population lives 60 km or closer to the sea coast, with increasing tendency. In many areas, such as the North Sea and Baltic Sea, coasts are no more a natural environment but heavily affected and modified by past and ongoing human activities: exploitation of gas and oil, shipping and industry, land reclamation, offshore wind-farming, utilization of marine resources and mariculture, and tourism with all kinds of construction work including protection of coastal settlements. Coastal zones are subject to environmental threats that endanger the human population, economic activities and the ecosystem.

A sustainable use of coastal zones requires a rational management, balancing the various human activities and the natural developments. Integrated management of coasts and seas asks for people with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary scientific background, a knowledge of legal frameworks and management needs, an awareness of economic, social and natural pressures as well as a willingness to cooperate with coastal population and stakeholders.

The summer school on "Coastal and Marine Management" provides the opportunity to

  • deepen the understanding of the functioning and behaviour of regional sea ecosystems
  • broaden the knowledge on natural and anthropogenic influences on coastal seas
  • familiarize with recent developments, pressures and problems in coastal and marine systems
  • get an overview of administrative, legal and planning frameworks
  • receive an insight in applied research and practical coastal management
  • improve their didactics skills by developing online information modules
