The COME! summer school will be a vibrant mixture of interactive sessions, field trips, and group work in a unique setting, designed to give participants hands-on project and research experience with a range of issues related to marine, coastal and delta sustainability with a focus on novel and innovative approaches and methodologies. After an introductory day with an overall overview of sustainability challenges and the state of art in marine & coastal science, policy and management, during the week 1 the students will follow plenary sessions or one of parallel sessions normally exploring marine or coastal/delta issues. The second week will focus on interactions with stakeholders – business, public bodies and NGOs engaged in management & governance activities over marine and coastal resources. To support in-class learning, the educational process will include field excursions.
The School will start and finish in Seri Iskandar, the seat of the Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS; most of the stakeholder sessions (as well as supporting sessions by academic faculty) will be hold on the premises of Universiti Kuala Lumpur in Lumut. Bus transfers between Seri Iskandar and Lumut will be arranged by the organisers of the summer school.
We offer two educations tracks. The Track 1 includes the full course of two weeks and successful participants will receive a certificate of completion entailing 3 ECTS. The Track 2 of the COME! School includes only the week 1 (August 15-19, 2022); participants attending all the sessions and at least 2 hours of individual consultations with the School faculty will receive a certificate of completion worth 1.5 ECTS.
By the end of the School, all the participants enrolled to the Track 1 (individually or in small groups) will be expected to develop and present proposals for a practical solution for a real-life problem, or detailed paper proposals reflecting on their project experience and learning outcomes of the COME! School. Participants and faculty are encouraged to re-develop the final reports into academic papers or project applications.
The COME! summer school will be a valuable learning experience for everyone, but having a great time is also a summer essential. All the participants will be students or young experts, therefore we would like everyone to have a memorable time with us in Malaysia!
