The Centre Virchow-Villermé is part of the organising committee of the EDGE (Environmental Diplomacy and Geopolitics) International Summer School, which will take place in Paris from September 4 to September 9. This summer school is part of the interdisciplinary programme “Politics of the earth” initiated by Université Sorbonne Paris Cité and is dedicated to graduate students and PhD candidates from all disciplines. The summer school programme combines natural sciences and social sciences and seeks to provide students with a framework to think the Earth and the World together. The sessions of the first day will be dedicated to “Facing disasters”, on day two “Politics of climate change” will be addressed, on day three the link between environment and human health will be questioned, on day four politics of biodiversity will be overviewed, and finally, on day five it is the “Urbanization and environmental challenges: diverse perspectives from North and South” that will be addressed. Two other summer schools will be organised by the members of the EDGE project, at the University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA) and at the University of Liège (ULg) in order to foster students and researchers mobility within these countries.
