LV-Beschreibung

Lehrmethodik

Pre-seminar in Vienna, one week excursion to Samothraki with defined research plans, field work, analysis, presentations of main findings and submission of a written group assignment after the seminar.

Inhalt/e

The course is designed as a 2-week excursion to the island of Samothraki in Greece, in collaboration with the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research and the University of Patras, with the aim to learn and apply social ecology and aquatic ecology approaches in a local setting while supporting current research and building synergy with a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve process. The Institute of Social Ecology (SEC) has been conducting research on the social metabolism of the island of Samothraki since 2007, acknowledged by the Sustainability Award 2010 received by the Austrian Ministry of Science and Research. This interdisciplinary research on energy, material flows, land use and the island economy, and the simultaneous networking with local civil society and stakeholders, prompted the Municipal Council, unanimously, to make an effort at turning the whole island into a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The course gives students the opportunity to engage in a real-life project and utilise their scientific training to support the process further, namely the creation of a management plan with a set of activities towards sustainability, and a science plan for further research on the island that would also meet local interests. This will provide students the experience of participating in a transdisciplinary research process, being exposed to a search for solutions for sustainability and development challenges, and learning to interact with stakeholders in a culturally challenging environment. The course will conclude with a reflection on the experiences and written student reports on the results of their specific research. We will make an attempt to interpret these results within the framework of sustainability and development studies. The course addresses advanced Master Degree students from both the natural and social sciences (environmental sciences, environmental sociology, aquatic ecology, human and social ecology, environmental sociology, water resources management, developmen

Lehrziel

The objectives of the course are: (a) expose students to sustainability and development challenges in a local setting seen from a social ecological perspective, (b) reflect and engage in the design of a management plan to include first project ideas for the new biosphere reserve such as for sustainable tourism, land use, water, waste and energy systems, and (c) allow the experience of a transdisciplinary research process by learning to interact with stakeholders and conduct interviews in a culturally challenging environment (translation will be provided by Greek students as far as required).
