Ecosystem services student course

 

 

 

 

The 6th year student course about Values of ecosystem services, biodiversity and green-blue infrastructure in cities focuses on exemplary parts of the city of Decin – Marianska louka, Kvadrberk – at this time. Course took place on the second week of October at Jan Evangelista Purkyne University in Usti nad Labem (UJEP). The IEEP with Liebniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Developmnet organise this bilateral course for Czech and German student. This 3-day course allows participants to test methods of mapping green-blue infrastructure. The goal of this mapping is to evaluate ecosystem services of selected locations. Ecosystem services are the direct and indirect contributions of ecosystems to human well-being.

Each Czech-German group of students will work on a joint project over the next few months. They will use the acquired methods to evaluate green-blue areas in Decin. Interim results will be presented in November 2018 at Dresden meeting in IÖR (Dresden). The course is organised as a part of BIDELIN project. Looking forward to a second meeting!
