International Summer School in Land-System Science July 7 to 12, 2019 in Filzbach, Switzerland

Students will develop an integrated understanding of land system science and landscape assessment. They learn to use state-of-the-art data, tools, and models for spatial analyses as well as improve their ability to build strong connections between scientific understanding and the commu- nities of practice and policy that govern and manage the use of land.

This summer school is organized by the Swiss Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL in cooperation with the Global Land Programme GLP and University of Berne. The lecturers build a multi-disciplinary group of renowned scientists from WSL, ETH Zurich, Wageningen University, Free University of Amsterdam, and University of Berne.
