Training in Land Degradation and Rehabilitation: Current Challenges and New Educational Resources

International Workshop

LANDCARE “Land Degradation and Rehabilitation in Mediterranean Environments” is an international project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union (2015-2018). The goal of LANDCARE is to improve training capacities in relation to Land Degradation and Rehabilitation (LD&R) in Southern Europe, in order to fulfil the demands of an emerging labour market and contribute to the green economy.

The project focuses in four topics (freshwater ecosystems, coastal areas, contaminated soils and wildfire areas), and two transversal thematic strands transversal (Environmental Education and Employability). LD&R is a field that requires training involving real study cases and hands-on experience. The education path proposed in the project combines short-term international mobility through intensive courses with innovative online learning and international cross sectoral mobility to gain real-world experience through internships hosted by the professional partner participants. In parallel, an especial effort is dedicated to teaching staff training and to the exchange of best practices on land rehabilitation.

The inscription is free and mandatory.
Deadline for inscription: 20th October. Limited places available for the field trip on 27 October.
