"Water management issues from a social science and management perspective", 16-22 November 2015


The question of water quality and quantity in urban and rural areas was studied with a focus on Greece, including examples of sustainable water usage and exploitation over time. During their visit at NEO, the students followed several lectures and also organized and implemented a series of interviews with farmers, locals, representatives from the Water Management agency of Pylos and associates from the Costa Navarino resort in order to deal with different aspects of water related issues for settlements and water management. This master course is one of the courses within a broader university programme for internationalization developed by Swedish universities and the Swedish Institutes around the Mediterranean.
