The focus of the Autumn School will be on rural sustainability, with a particular attention be paid on case study approach in research and teaching, and on scenario integration and scenario building. In this respect the School will be a logical continuation of the Summer School 2012 in the ReSET/EnGo Governance of Global Environmental Change series; the program of that summer School included case study research on five topics – local sustainable energy, water quality, sustainable tourism, land use & forestry, sustainable waste management, with all the research done for the area around the Summer School venue, which was the village of Vorohta in Ukrainian Carpathians. The Carpathian case studies will also be used for scenario development exercises on the Autumn School.

Participation is open to members of the European Commission Tempus project “Environmental Governance for Environmental Curricula” and participants of the OSI ReSET project “Governance of Global Environmental Change”.
