As the world has entered
As the world has entered a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, where humans have become the main forces of transformation of the planet, this Summer School intends to break away from disciplinary divides and bring a fresh look on the key issues brought upon by this ‘age of humans’. Combining natural sciences and social sciences, it seeks to provide students with a framework to think the Earth and the World together.
The Summer School is designed for graduate students and PhD candidates from all disciplines. It is the first of a series of three, supported by the EDGE project: Environmental Diplomacy and Geopolitics.

The Institute of Public Health,
The Institute of Public Health, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Centre Virchow-Villermé and Chiba University from Japan jointly organize a summerschool about global health interventions in local contexts. Lecturer from Japan, France, United States, Netherlands and Germany aim to explicate social and cultural factors that need to be evaluated and considered when thinking about global health interventions in local contexts. This summerschool particularly enables students to understand culture as tacit knowledge that underlies all behaviours, including those of global health players and health professionals. The course will guide students to critically reflect the assumptions and tools used in public and global health and to understand the possible implications of the paradigms underlying global health.
