International Bachelor Summer School for Climate Change Research: Confronting Climate Change – from Science to Policy

This summer school will take place from 8 – 19 August 2022 at the University of Bern. It is co-organised by the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research and the WTI.

The International Bachelor Summer School for Climate Change Research invites highly motivated bachelor students (semester 4 to 6) from different disciplines to participate in the course which is being held under the umbrella of Climate Change Research.

The Summer School focuses on the following topics:

  • the physical climate system
  • climate economics and governance
  • knowledge transfer.

It comprises keynote lectures that are held by high-profile scientists; workshops to train and sharpen students’ disciplinary competence; and a simulation exercise of a multilateral climate conference that will be run by the students themselves. A field trip to the high altitude research station Jungfraujoch (3500 m a.s.l.) will provide insights into latest measurement technologies, as well as to the impacts of climate change. Students will have the opportunity to experience one of Switzerland’s most spectacular places: the Aletsch – the largest Alpine Glacier.
