Dear students:
 

Thinking about traveling while learning & getting credits, or developing research and collaboration opportunities? Do you want to explore European Russia? Here is a wonderful opportunity …

International summer school  “ANTHROPOGENIC AND NATURAL SOIL LANDSCAPES IN EUROPEAN RUSSIA: FROM SEA TO SEA» http://3mugis.org/

The 3MUGIS summer school is an annual event, which addresses relevant contemporary environmental consequences and opportunities of urbanization with a special emphasis on soil functions. The summer school aims to provide a solid background practical skills training in addressing impacts of urbanization through the monitoring and assessment of urban soils, design, and maintenance of urban green infrastructure, and projects of sustainable urban development. 

 
3MUGIS-2019 will include a full week of intensive on-campus lectures in Moscow and training by highly recognized experts in environmental science, soil science, landscape planning, and sustainable urban development, followed by an expanded two-week field tour from the White Sea to the Azov Sea. The tour will give students a unique overview of the natural and cultural diversity of European Russia. Five zones (subarctic, taiga, deciduous forest, forest-steppes and steppes) will be studied in regard to key issues of urban development, including industrial pollution, forest management, agricultural development, and urban-rural interactions. Urban soils and green infrastructure at each of the region will be studied in comparison to natural references. Conventional field descriptions and classification will be amplified by advanced techniques of in-field analysis 

3MUGIS-2019 summer school will host international groups up to 35 participants. 3MUGIS-2019 participants will receive 3 ECTS, recognized by educational programs worldwide. Participation fees will cover accommodation, two meals per day, traveling inside Russia and all materials necessary for courses. The participation fee is anticipated to be 1,200 euro. All of the foreign participants will also receive visa support and any other assistance with the organization of their trip to Russia.
