Global Affairs Summer Scholars Programme: How to tackle the climate emergency?
The Global Affairs Summer Scholars Programme (GASS) is an intensive, one-week pre-university programme in International Affairs for BAT and BI students.
GASS is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to gain first-hand exposure to International Affairs and its exciting sub-disciplines, while also getting a first taste of their future life as a university student. The programme is taught in English.
In this 4th edition, GASS is focused on ways to tackle the climate emergency, the most important international political issue of the decade. It offers participants a unique blend of interactive classes with university-level teachers from IBEI, and seminars with experienced practitioners residing at the BIPP-HUB.
While analysing the challenges and implications of rapid climate change and environmental degradation, students will learn about a wide range of related issues that make the climate emergency so complex, such as development, democracy, human rights, security, and international economics. The week-long course offers a first taste of their future life as a university student.
