The focus of the 2012 Autumn School was rural sustainability, with an emphasis on applying case study approaches, scenario integration and scenario building in research and teaching. In this respect the School was a logical continuation of the 2012 Summer School in Lviv. The Carpathian case studies used at the 2012 Summer School in Lviv were also used for scenario development exercises during the 2012 Autumn School.

the Autumn School contributed to helping the participants increase their understanding of principles and application of environmental governance and governance of global change, in particular as it relates to rural areas and specific rural problems. Participants also gained first-hand experience of creative and innovative thinking for curriculum development and teaching, including new ways to perform needs assessments
