On small islands you will notice a strong connection between people and the sea. Rising sea levels, depletion of corals, higher frequency of natural disasters are big challenges inhabitants of those islands have to cope with, depending on the location. People might worry about the tourism revenue, the economical situation and the future of the island itself. It offers an interesting study situation, but you might be capable of making a difference.
How to organize sustainable island management? That’s what this minor is about. For nine weeks you will be immersed into sustainable island management from different points of view through in workshops and lectures. And you will be actively involved in discussions on the threats, challenges, opportunities and solutions small islands have to cope with.
You will prepare yourself for a project on sustainable island management for a real client. The projects are either ecological or socio-economical. For a fieldtrip during two weeks you can choose between the Dutch Caribbean island of St. Eustatius or an island closer to home like a Wadden island. Additional costs apply for both fieldtrip options.
