2020 Summer School on

“Marine Ecological Health and Sustainable Development”

July 5-13, 2020    Beijing, China

Notice: Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, summer school will be postponed until 2021

 

Background

The 2020 Summer School on Marine Ecological Health and Sustainable Development is jointly organized by Peking University (PKU), Xiamen University (XMU), City University of Hong Kong (CITYU), and National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU), which is to be held in Beijing on July 5-13, 2020.

Since 2008 seven summer schools have been held, which were well attended by over 650 participants from 14 countries/regions and received very encouraging feedbacks.

The Summer School series aim to provide participants the fundamental concepts and latest development in the rapidly growing field of environmental science and pollution research. The course is relevant and useful for postgraduates and professionals working on the areas of environmental science, pollution and public health. Limited quota is available for senior undergraduates intended to work on these research areas.

The theme of Summer School 2020 is “Marine Ecological Health and Sustainable Development”, which is a multidisciplinary subject of global concern. We continue to fulfill our mission to provide high quality, interactive teaching and learning experiences (including lectures, field trip, student presentation, and culture salon) to our participants. The Summer School acts as a platform to nurture young scientists via direct interaction and discussion with world-class lecturers in the field. It also provides participants a valuable opportunity for career advancement, personal enrichment and development of social awareness and responsibility to the environment.
