Students Summary Report on EUSBSR 2017

Students Summary Report on EUSBSR 2017From the report:

"Without the youth panel presented by the BUP representatives, this event would have simply been an event hosted by experts in more of a lecturing manner, whereas including panel discussions, particularly hosted by the youth, forces those attending to acknowledge and consider the views and importance of this demographic as the future of this region. We would encourage the BUP and the EUSBSR organisers to include youth panels each year, and where possible include youth members on more panels to encourage debate rather than present the opinions of one generation to another."

BUP Research Notes & Themes

BUP research notesI want to make you alert that in November we will launch the new BUP webpage, and some new efforts to facilitate research cooperation among BUP colleagues, as a follow up on the work with the BUP Strategy 2017-2020. The new initiative has two parts: BUP Research Notes and BUP Themes.

The aim with the Research Notes is to spread research findings and knowledge on researchers and research groups in the Baltic Sea region via the BUP web site. The information will also be published on a regular basis in a Research Notes Letter to be spread to Member universities, participating universities and other stakeholders in society. We welcome scientific articles, book chapters, proceedings, dissertations published from 2015 regarding the following Themes: Climate, Energy, Food, Urban-Rural development, Green infra-structure, Transport, and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). For this to happen we All need to contribute, you may already now tell us about your research. Request: Researchers, please send your contribution using the Research Notes Form. And please encourage your colleagues to do the same.
