"Mountains in a changing world" : summer program in mountain studies

École d'été Formation, International
22 juin 2020 - 10 juillet 2020
Experts from a wide range of disciplines will offer a rich, interdisciplinary view of Alpine history, culture, people and environment, in this short program taught in the heart of the Alps.
COVID-19 pandemic update: Due to the late starting date of our summer course we are hoping that we can maintain it. The application deadline is therefore extended to April 15th without requiring a deposit before then. At that time, we will inform all applicants on whether it will take place or not.
The program covers topics as diverse as architecture, tourism, climate change, earth sciences, and history.

The course also takes you beyond the classroom and into the mountains in a series of field trips and case studies tied to the latest in current research.

Participants will discover and experience:
  • the Oisans range and famous Lautaret pass: how to do a geological transect; the unique richness of the Lautaret Alpine Botanical garden; sleeping in a mountain shelter
  • the Chartreuse range: the history of human beings in the Alps
  • the Vercors range: economic policies, esp. linked with tourism diversification, and changing local cultural practices
  • the Mont-Blanc glaciers: how they recede...
  • in and around Grenoble: key notions on climate change; the Metropolis and its role and responsibilities, urbanism as a tool for policy-makers, Arts and mountain landscapes...

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the new application deadline is April 15th.
