Climate Change: the five phases of grief
The Nonlinear Physics group (GFNL) of the University of Santiago de Compostela organizes within the program of «University of Verán 2019«, this course on the problem of climate change focused from an integral point of view from September 2 to 6 in the Faculty of Physics of the USC.
The program, in which up to 20 rapporteurs participate, is structured in 5 sessions: denial, anger, depression, negotiation and acceptance, titles that allude to the 5 phases through which a person goes through a serious problem. Through this tour it is intended that the participant not only acquires knowledge about the problem but also critical ability to draw their own conclusions.
The main objective of this proposal is that students obtain a vision with a scientific and realistic basis on climate change as well as the possibility of appreciating the complexity of the proposed solutions to mitigate it.
In addition to their causes, the effects on ecosystems will be addressed in detail, and their impact on society will be analyzed.
Introductory Training School. Nowelties
The Environmental Biotechnology group (Biogroup) of the University of Santiago de Compostela, as a partner of the Marie Curie Nowelties Action (nowelties.eu), organizes a school from the 7th to 11th of October 2019 at the School of Engineering (ETSE) Summer on treatment and recovery of wastewater resources for 14 doctoral students that will cover different aspects such as: technology, microcontaminants, microbiology, legislation, economics, environmental impact, etc. But it will also include training on cross-cutting issues such as bibliometry, social acceptance, communication, among others.
The program is completed with internships, a technical visit to the WWTP of Guillarei (Tui) and an extensive social program.
