This year's SAIL course started August 4 in Aalborg, Denmark has ended August 18th in Swinouisjie, Poland. 30 students from 14 nations and teachers from 5 nations surrounding The Baltic Sea annually came together for a summer course called SAIL (Sustainability Applied in International Learning) organised by BUP (Baltic University Programme). For two intense weeks the students and teachers live and act together around the clock also as the crew of the Polish tall ship Fryderyk Chopin.
We have learned and shared knowledge about social, economical and ecological sustainability. The Baltic Sea’s health is at stake and our future depends on our ability to solve the current and future situations and problems. Hot topics for practice and discussions has been how well we are able to join forces, on the boat as well as in our societies, to switch towards a more sustainable lifestyle, agriculture, forestry, fishery, governance, energy dependance both as professionals and as private persons in governance and as consumers.
Applications for 2016 will be announced at http://www.balticuniv.uu.se/sail/ in due time.
