Natural Hazards in the Anthropocene Summer School 🇸🇪

August 21, 2023 - August 25, 2023

Natural Hazards in the Anthropocene Summer School 🇸🇪

📍 Uppsala University, Sweden.

This international one-week course gathers PhD students in Earth-, engineering- and social sciences for an introduction to the dynamics and impacts of natural hazards (e.g., floods, droughts, wildfires and earthquakes), as well as disaster management and social vulnerability under the umbrella of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). Through lectures, seminars, and group assignments, the course will explore DRR through the disaster management cycle (mitigation, preparation, response and recovery), looking at the interplay between natural hazards and societal impacts and responses.
