The GOSES Summer School is designed not only for doctoral students, but also for post-docs and faculty members, who wish to further explore the governance of socio-ecological systems, discuss cutting-edge research with peers and established scholars alike, and develop specific skills such as presenting and discussing research, co-writing papers, modeling socio-ecological systems and performing fieldwork.

This edition aims at bringing together scholars who work on socio-ecological systems and are interested in its governance at different levels, from local to regional to global, and from different perspectives, including ecology, biology, agronomy, geography, planning, management, economics, anthropology, sociology, political science, international relations and the emerging discipline of sustainability science. The specific focus of this edition will be the land-ocean continuum: coastal zones, river deltas, islands and wetlands. However, this edition may also be suitable for scholars working on other types of socio-ecological systems, who are interested in learning more about Chinese and European research on socio-ecological systems.
