Summer Camp on Environment and Sustainability

Deadline: 15 April 2015
Open to: all students and PhD students interested in environmental sciences or sustainable development
Venue: Sächsische Schweiz (about 90 km East of Dresden)


EURENSSA is an one-week open-air meeting for students from all over Europe, studying programmes related to environment & sustainability. The idea of EURENSSA is to learn more about the environment and its related subjects during field trips and workshops, to gain new knowledge during lectures held by experts and to share your experiences. It is a possibility to apply your unique knowledge in a different environment and to compare the aspects of environmental sciences in various countries and research fields. Another important aspect of EURENSSA is to make new international friends with similar interests, and have a lot of fun, of course. EURENSSA 2015 will take place 1. – 8. August in Germany in Saxon Switzerland region.

This year’s topic is The blind Men and the Elephant-Interdisciplinary Environmental Research and the programme is divided into three sessions:

  • Environmental Ethics;
  • Ecology vs. Economy;
  • Environmental Engineering, Analytics and Modelling. They are looking for highly motivated students with all different kind of backgrounds (e.g. ecology, management, engineering, earth/environ. sciences, sustainable development,…) to explore environmental issues in an interdisciplinary context.


All students and PhD students studying or doing research in environmental sciences or sustainable development. Students from other fields are welcome too, as long as they show strong interest in environmental/sustainability questions or are actively involved in environmental protection.


The participation fee is 100 Euros. This includes:

  • accommodation fee (camp site at Permahof, bring your own tent and camping gear!);
  • three meals per day;
  • workshops;
  • material;
  • transport during the event.

Please take note that you will have to pay for transport to and from the conference venue by yourself. EURENSSA only pays for transport during the conference programme.

  1. Hey terrific website! Does running a blog such as
    this take a lot of work? I’ve very little knowledge of programming however I
    was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog
    owners please share. I know this is off subject
    however I just had to ask. Thanks a lot!

  2. The problem iis that laser surgery mayy be very expensive
    and the chemical solutions can hurt the surrounding area.

    People consider warts to be unsightly which in turn often causes
    a social stigma and that is why wart treatment is a sought after
    remedy. Another popular folk remedy is the use of duct tape.

  3. This damages the bug’s exoskeleton, making itt the most effective of natural pesticides.
    Sometimes it may take a combination of several methods,
    such as an immediate contact kkill substance, and then roach motels in places where you have evidence of
    previous inhabitants. Many homes are often iin the need of a Pest Control Company to help wirh dealing with cockroaches inn their homes.

  4. In fact if you asked people to name the one insect that they would least like to have running around their
    home, its a good bet that roaches would shkw up near thhe top of that list.
    For much more details on San Antonio Pest Control, call (210)
    399-3890 orr visit our local Terminix store.
    There are around 3,500 recognized species of cockroaches all-around the globe.

  5. Put wet wash towels in tthe washing machine or sit them outside to dry.

    A moving van accidentally hit tthe electrical polst next
    to us csusing the post to come crushing down.
    The appearance of insects frightens off possible shoppers andd thus this might significantly minimize the exact
    price tag of the house.

  6. Theyy arrived from a yyard and designed their way via cracks,
    vents, drainage pipes and other openings chances are you’ll not be
    aware of. According to Billy the Exterminator, the bait is the most
    important sgep because of its residual effects.
    Knowing the difference between each of these pests can make it
    a lot easier to knmow how to treat the problem when faced with one.

  7. So there may be a whole community of cockroaches living in that used coffee table you just
    saw for sale at that yard sale. Mix boric acid with sugar as a bait-and-kill method.
    Small deposits of food or grease accumulated in kitchen cupboards
    and in other difficult to reach places (for example under dish-washer
    or behind refrigerators) is ideal ood for German cockroaches.

  8. Be that as it may, cockroaches have been present virtually everywhere ffor longer than we have and they seem detyermined to stay.
    Quick action is necessary to contain the problem and resolve it
    fast. Paint a piece of construction paper or cardboard with the sticky glue, and leave along wallboards,
    under sinks, oor wherever you’ve sseen roaches.

  9. First and foremost – make sure any chips, cereals,
    crackers, flour, oatmeal, sugar, etc is in sealed contaijers (no the plastic bag clips will
    not cut it). If your pest is the German roach (figure
    C), then you are probably seeimg them in the kitchen. If you feel the sprzy isn’t killing fast enough, then add a little more soap, but
    not too much as it mayy clog uup the spray nozzle.

  10. But interestingly enough, there are various kinds of food bags, which
    basically of course, handle foods to make it stay fresh. Nowadays, many
    people opt to use food dehydrators because they are
    very eaay to use, and faster. Some people have experienced first hand the delicious food preserved through home canning.

  11. First, herb extracts from the lab mainly targets the bacteria
    and yeasts inn the food processing industry. Tryy some of thhe
    following food preservation methods to find new ways to enjoy delicious
    strawberry flavors when they’re out of season. Some people have experienced first hand the delicious food preserved through home canning.

  12. Business sealers are used to package abundant larger things.
    These bags are at least as reliable as the Tilia baags and far cheaper.
    The sensor detected the bag, the unit indicated
    a vacuum was engaged, but the air was not removed from the bag.

  13. I eventually found that using liqyid soap and water alone worked just as well.
    You might imagine that only exterminators know how to get rid off them but with the right instruments yyou may get it done by yourself.
    Do not overwater indoor plants because accumulated water wkll bee available to cockroaches.

  14. The accessories necessary would be the black belt, red stocking cap,
    glasses, pink sweat suits and shirts, white
    glove, white beard, wig, glue, jingle bells,
    laundry bag and so on. So in all, Christmas in Lanzarote is
    a very relaxing time, celebrated in an understated fashion (compared to the UK) in the warm climate of the Canary Islands.
    Consider selling in lots if you accumulate too many to list

  15. It is difficult to trace the exact route these cockroaches took to
    get to the U. There’s no reason to suffer through spider control, fly control,
    or cockroach control alone. Roaches have tenancies
    to bring boric acid with them back to their nest, which hdlps to kill the root of thee

  16. If you don’t such as the suggestion of the ultrasonic tool that needs power to run, as well
    as you don’t like the thought of smelling natural herbs constantly,
    you can always purchase some mice repellents. There are natural
    alternatives that use a mix of natural ingredients
    to maintain mice away. You cann likewise acquire granules aand
    also other forms of mice repellent that you could easily just sprsad about
    in locations where you intend to deter mouse and maintain them away.

  17. Andrew’s fingers will then wal across thee same surface and
    he won’t wash his hands for two hours before his swab is taken. American cockroaches are usually shiny
    reddish brown to dark color and arre the largest specie from the
    three. Some of the mkst effective and well-known pesticides tend to be contact
    kill pesticides and will kkey in the pests� bodies
    through absorption.
