The course in Communicating Climate Change mainly focuses on climate change and sustainable development through media coverage (print media and visual media). The aim of the course is threefold: to equip students with (1) an understanding of the role of media and the impact it has in shaping current discourses on the topic of climate change and sustainable development, and (2) skills for systematic and critical evaluation of current climate change discourses and (3) ability to select an effective communication style for intended target groups. -

The course explores the patterns and processes of marine ecosystems. The main emphasis of the course is on the population and community ecology of marine ecosystems, relating such ecological knowledge to the broader context of the environmental challenges faced by marine organisms and humans on a global scale. Lectures provide an in-depth understanding of concepts such as i) the diversity of life, distribution and dispersal, principles of population growth, species interactions, primary production, decomposition and nutrient cycling in marine ecosystems, trophic dynamics and food webs, biodiversity, ecosystem stability and function, as well as disturbance and succession of communities; ii) human-induced impacts on coastal and marine ecosystems, as well as an introduction to ecosystem conservation. Discussion sessions and writing assignments serve to deepen the understanding of selected theoretical and practical concepts, approaches or applications as well as to train students in reading and writing scientific papers. -

The course explores the complex interrelationships between coastal and marine natural resources and humans and communities. In recent years, there has been an increasing recognition that the marine environment cannot be managed effectively without the cooperation and participation of resource user groups and coastal stakeholders. Co-management and community-based management are two related, yet different approaches wherein cooperation and partnership are paramount and responsibility is shared, formally or informally, between state and user groups and/or communities of place and interest. The focus of this course will be to critically examine the extent to which co-management and other alternative community-based strategies provide a viable approach to marine management. Studies of such efforts from around the world, in different social and cultural contexts, will be critically examined to determine costs and benefits, the opportunities for and barriers to their implementation, and the conditions necessary for the development for sustainable, community-based coastal management systems. -

The course explores the concepts, principles, approaches, processes and issues related to integrated coastal and ocean management. This is achieved through a review of the development and history of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) within a global context. An overview of different management strategies, as well as the meaning of integration in the governing of natural resources, will be presented. Country case studies will be presented and examined. Successful and failed integrated coastal and ocean management techniques will also be discussed and analysed. -

The course focuses on oceanic and coastal environments, emphasising the relationship between physical processes and management strategies. The physical environment, i.e. waves, currents, sediment movement, beaches, erosion/deposition mechanisms, as well as potential consequences of sea-level rise and global warming, is integrated with anthropogenic dimensions, i.e. usage, coastal defence, pollution (e.g. persistent marine debris) and resource exploitation. The course also gives students an understanding of the consequences of human interactions with both marine and coastal environments as well as an introduction to quantitative techniques for data processing, measuring and data presentation in the field of coastal and marine management. -

The course Pollution in the Coastal Arctic introduces students to the chemistry related to contamination in the coastal zone. Chemical interactions in the interface of the sea, land, and air will be explained along with the transport of pollutants. The state of the coastal zones in the world will be discussed, as well as regional, national, and international monitoring practices and programs. An introduction to designing a monitoring program will be presented. Further, insight into our own lifestyle and the effects we have on the environment will be discussed. A special focus will be placed on the effects of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and heavy metals on living organisms, with special emphasis on sea-birds. Emphasis is also placed on environmental chemistry, where students gain insights into chemical analyses and ecotoxicology. -

In the course The Blue Economy and Coastal Communities, different approaches to achieve the sustainable use and conservation of ocean resources for improved wellbeing, social equity, and healthy aquatic ecosystems will be discussed. The course focuses on the blue economy paradigm, which connects environmental, social, and economic sustainability by promoting the improvement of human wellbeing and social equity. The Blue Economy has gained attention among government organizations, development agencies, politicians, academics, entrepreneurs, and businesses as being a new integrated approach to community and regional development. Different economic sectors that play an important role in coastal community development will be examined, such as aquaculture, marine biotechnology, energy, trade, tourism, construction, and marine services. This course shifts the attention from traditional economic analysis to alternative economic models and measures. -
