The Summer School on Low Emission Development Planning will be held in the Vila Belvedere in Durres, Albania, from September 8 to 14. The Summer School will be organized by Regional Education and Information Centre for Sustainable Development in South-East Europe – REIC in collaboration with the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s Office in Sarajevo responsible for the Foundation’s work in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and North Macedonia.

The Summer School Low Emission Development Planning is dedicated to low emission development planning with a particular focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Special attention will also be given to climate change adaptation measures.

The organizer will provide a full fellowship for 16 participants, all from Albania. The full fellowship includes costs of full board accommodation (shared rooms). The only cost of transport has to be borne by the participants themselves.

The deadline for application is July 12, 2019, while the official language of the Summer School is English.

The Summer School will cover core elements for low emission development from energy production, transport, housing, and public sector

Applicants are to send their CVs (in English) to a.hanjalic@reic.org.ba. They may attach additional supporting documents (e.g. Letter of motivation, obtained certificates/degrees etc.).

The students will be led through a way of thinking from global to the local. In this sense, they will be able to understand the key global concepts in terms of low emission development and which tools should be developed on the local level. Therefore, the Summer School will cover core elements for low emission development from different sectors – energy production, transport, housing, the public sector.

The Summer School will include experienced domestic and international trainers.

The concept of the Summer School is to provide training for students but also to engage them in a way to facilitate their innovativeness and to simulate their decision-making approach. At the very beginning, students will be divided into smaller groups and asked to propose a project idea out of one of the four sectors.
