The Summer Course is an initiative of the German office of the Baltic University Programme in Hamburg and is organized in cooperation with the Interreg IVB Baltic Sea Region project WATERPRAXIS. It is meant to acquaint delegates from various countries about matters related to sustainable development, river basin management and climate issues in the Baltic, as well as foster international and multicultural learning. The course will offer a state-of-the-art overview of matters related to sustainable development and river basin management and will be a timely contribution towards efforts in the internationalisation, networking and cultural interaction among local government officials, practitioners and students from Baltic countries.]]>
One of the most serious problems seen in the Baltic Sea is the eutrophication caused by nutrient loads. Although there are practical measures to restrict them, the implementation of river basin restoration measures as envisaged in the Water Framework Directive (WFD) is still deficient.
This is a national event and it will be held in German language.
WATERPRAXIS unterstützt diese Tagung, die sich an alle wendet, die sich für die Alster und ihre Nebengewässer interessieren oder beruflich für sie verantwortlich sind. Anwohner, Erholungssuchende, ehrenamtliche Naturschützer und Bachpaten, Angler und Behörden bringen eine Vielzahl an verschiedenen Interessen und Ansprüchen mit.]]>
In April 2011, it will already be the eleventh time that the conference on issues of sustainable development is organized in co-operation with a wide range of European research institutes.]]>
Land use by ditching and ditch cleaning on acid sulphate soils (ASS) is an increasing environmental problem. Our knowledge on the biogeochemical effects of anthropogenic activities on ASS has gradually increased whereas ecological effects are rarely studied. In addition, we still do not know the accurate distribution and dimension of ASS.
