SAIL for Students
SAIL – Sustainability Applied in International Learning is a BUP course. It is performed on-board the tall ship STS Fryderyk Chopin during two weeks of sailing.
The course gathers about 30 students and 8 teachers. Both the students and the teachers come from the whole BUP network. The course takes about two weeks and is performed onboard the ship while sailing in the Baltic Sea or neigboring waters. A part of the course is on how to sail a sailingship. This includeds all the sailors duties that occur like night watches, kitchen duty, setting and furling sails. The teoretical part of the course consists of lectures, presentations and groupwork all on some aspect of sustainable development. The course is organised by the BUP coordinating secretariat at Uppsala University.
In late summer an international and interdisciplinary summer course on sustainable development is organised by the BUP national centre in Germany.
For students that have participated in any BUP course a BUP Students Conference is organised in Poland every spring. The conference includes a session, BUP Students' Parliament, that elects the BUP students representative to the BUP International Board. The conference is organised by the BUP National centre and in cooperation with the BUP coordinating secretariat in Uppsala.
