Project partner Eleni Gianni from the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) had the opportunity to introduce the CEEGS concept at the Nisyros Geopark Summer School.

The second edition of this Summer School took place from 28 May to 5 June 2023 in Emborios, Nisyros (Greece). The Summer School was co-organised by the Inter-institutional Postgraduate Programme “WATER, BIOSPHERE AND CLIMATE CHANGE” (NKUA – DIPAE – UNESCO Con-E-Ect Chair).

Universities and researchers from the fields of Meteorology and Climatology, Geology, Forestry, Ecology and the Natural Environment participated with a variety of lectures and field exercises on the island of Nisyros, which is considered a natural sciences laboratory.

The postgraduate students who participated in the Summer School, completed both the theoretical course and fieldwork, such as laboratory exercises involving micro-bioclimatic measurements in the settlements of Nisyros, dendrochronology for reconstructing the climate of Nisyros in the past 200 years, air quality and environmental measurements in the volcano of Nisyros and the geological evolution of the active volcano of Nisyros over time.
