Summer School 2020

Deconstructing Climate Change: Global Environment Politics and Challenges

At Academia Aestiva Internationalis, we empower students to ask insightful questions, explore disciplinary boundaries and confront conventional ways of thinking.

This year we are encouraging you to think outside the box about the environment. What is the situation that we are in? Who is suffering and who is responsible? What are the predictions for the future?

Discover all this and more at our Summer School 2020 on environmental rights and global action!
