Go Global Okanagan is trying to reach a larger pool of graduate students for a Global Seminar Program run out of our Okanagan campus with a focus around sustainability. The seminar will occur from Sept 20 – 29, 2018 and will have students go to Kluane Lake in the Yukon to explore, in short, how historical and contemporary interactions between humans and the environment have shaped the present landscape.
Our hope is that you will be able to promote this opportunity to students through e-mail communication more effectively than we are able to. Students can reference our webpage for further information. If you would like any further information to assist in any promotions, please do not hesitate to ask. The deadline to apply is May 30, 2018 and we hope to have a mix of students from the Okanagan and Vancouver!
For any promotions that are sent out, you can use the following excerpt:
“Using the Kluane Lake region, Yukon Territory as our study area, you will be exploring how historical and contemporary interactions between humans and the environment have shaped the present landscape. You will also explore how environmental and social drivers of change shape the landscape over scales of space and time, and discuss future resilience and vulnerability in this context. The field component of the course will cover present-day perspectives and visions of the landscape and use by different groups, as well as historical and contemporary natural resource management governance systems & approaches by First Nations, Parks Canada, and the territorial government.
Please go to http://students.ok.ubc.ca/global/outgoing/gsp/current-programs/Landscapes_as_Complex_Social-Ecological_Systems__Kluane_Lake__Yukon.html for more information. The deadline to apply is May 30, 2018.”
Thank you very much for your time and any assistance you can provide!
