Call for participation ENVIROGATE: workshop on global environment and development

Avviso archiviato

ENVIROGATE is one of the 4EU+ educational projects coordinated by the University of Milano, together with the University of Warsaw and the University of Copenhagen. It is aimed at delivering a 3-days workshop on environment and development issues. The workshop will be held at an off-site location, most likely in Northern Italy, from 26th to 30th of June. The workshop is intended for BA students who are about to complete their second or third year in disciplines such as agricultural sciences, social sciences, economy, biological sciences.


The teachings of the workshop include the introduction to interdisciplinarity as the fundament of the investigation in environment and development; the analysis of the challenges of worldwide management of sustainable environment and development; a critical review of agricultural and social issues in environment and development. Lectures will also concentrate on didactic innovation. The workshop is also characterized by an intense teamwork performed by the students under the guidance of the trainers, on several challenges to which they will have to propose solutions.


The opinions and ideas of the students will be collected on what is the ideal master course they would take part in, and on which are the more appropriate didactic tools to use. In other words, the students will be given the opportunity to shape some aspects of the future master course according to their thoughts.


After the end of the workshop, the students will prepare an essay and presentation working in teams. Essays will be submitted to the scientific board of the workshop for approval. The University of Milan grants 3 ECTS for the successful completion of the workshop to students of the bachelors in “Agrotecnologie per l’ambiente e il territorio”, “Scienze e tecnologie agrarie”, “Viticultura ed enologia” “Produzione e Protezione delle Piante e dei Sistemi del Verde”, “Valorizzazione e Tutela dell'Ambiente e del Territorio Montano”. Students from different bachelors should initiate case-by-case procedures for the ECTS recognition.
