The new international master program CLEWS is starting and the introductory lecture is open for everyone! It is organized as hybrid lecture so it takes place online and in class.
The lecture gives an introduction of the different sub-systems and components of the Earth System and an overview of recent challenges in researching and overcoming global and regional change issues in climate, earth, water, and sustainability sciences.

One can access the lecture on zoom via the university website open.up - everyone can create an account very quickly and UP members can use their UP-Mail account.
