Water is an essential element in all our lives. H2O is a particularly important factor in the industries, infrastructure, science and leisure of Hungary, due to the country’s geographical location, natural resources and traditions. Hungary is world famous for its water-engineering and management achievements, including thermal baths, top quality potable water, water work engineers and Olympic medal winning water sport athletes.
The 'Water’ Summer School is a two week program providing a wide variety of interdisciplinary lectures, skill building sessions, site-visits, and social activities, focused on the diverse topics and challenges related to water usage, management and sustainability.
Daily lectures will cover subjects closely linked to water, such as sustainability and innovation, health, sports and environment, recreation and tourism, transportation and natural disaster management.
During the program, students will work in Water Focus Teams, in which they identify the essential role of water in the 21st century and create an action plan on how to develop a) Water Conscious Living b) New Brand: Hungary as a Land of Waters. Students will work on group projects while visiting appropriate sites, conducting street interviews, debates, and will present a posteror their work at a forum.
The course aims to grow global citizens - individuals who identify themselves as responsible members of a global community - with a deep understanding of the world around them, as well as a broad perspective on global issues. Critical thinking and intercultural communication skills will be developed through collaborative work with Hungarian students.
