SAIL 2015: Call for Teachers

Teachers To the 2015 SAIL Course On-board the Tall Ship Fryderyk Chopin

STS Fryderyk Chopin
The tall ship STS Fryderyk Chopin is a large, traditionally-rigged sailing vessel.

We are now looking for motivated teachers coming from different disciplines covering aspects of sustainability in a broad sense, thus creating an inter-disciplinary and international learning environment, which can introduce students in complex issues related to sustainability. We are looking for teachers who are interested in trying something new – combining tall ship sailing with an unconventional teaching environment, which is extra-ordinary but can be both physically and mentally demanding. The teachers are expected to prepare and plan the course beforehand, as well as correct exercises and essays/reports after the course. English is the spoken language of the course.

Facilitating multi-stakeholder collaboration

Inquiry based approach (IBA)SWEDESD and partners have published a handbook based on recent experiences and insights from collaborative learning initiatives in 18 cities on three continents.

The handbook describes the Inquiry-based Approach as a way to overcome constraints for collaboration and collaborative learning when addressing sustainability challenges. Such constraints include conflicting interests, unequal power relationships and lack of competence and resources among stakeholders.

The Inquiry-Based Approach (IBA) makes it possible for stakeholders from civil society, public authorities, business and academia to come together as a team and jointly engage in a purposeful process to tackle sustainability challenges with concrete actions at the local level.

New Book: Regional Development and the BSR

Reginal Development and the Baltic Sea RegionRegional Development and the Baltic Sea Region pdf
editors: Tomasz Branka and Arnold Bernaciak

"This publication from the Baltic University Programme gives a momentary glimpse of the region. In September 2011, the authors gathered to a meeting in Gniezno, Poland, and the articles should be seen as a reflection of that time. The eleven articles span over three different landscapes in the Baltic Sea region; the educational, the political and the social and natural landscapes. They cover aspects from the local level to the international level. The publication was edited by a team from University of Economics in Poznan and Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland, and from the BUP secretariat at Uppsala University, Sweden."

From the Preface by Paula Lindroos
