Any kind of assessment of long-term hazards is based on knowledge of the natural processes within the climate system, quantification by computer models and scenario analysis and must be supplemented by a risk assessment to evaluate the impacts in respect of potential mitigation measures. Participants at the 2016 Potsdam Summer School will learn to assess long-term hazards and conduct risk assessments to evaluate impacts and identify potential mitigation measures for impacts ranging from Arctic warming over sea-level rise to Amazon dieback. An intense ten-day programme will address four major topics.


The Potsdam Summer School 2016 will be conducted at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), the Albert Einstein Campus and the University of Potsdam.

Important Dates:

The deadline for submitting completed applications will be 15 April 2016.
