Objective of the Project

The project expanded and fully implemented study modules developed within the CASE and COCIES projects into three novel study profiles at the bachelor’s level and four profiles at the master’s level. At the bachelor’s level, the testing of “Cultural Environmentalist”, “Socially-ecological Enterprise” and “Public Engagement and Public Administration” study profiles occurred. At the master’s level, the “Social Science Reflection of Environmental Problems”, “Public Sphere and Politics”, “City, Province, Landscape” and “Ecological Economics” study profiles were scrutinized. Tested study profiles occurred with the cooperation of Lillehammer University College (Norway), which evaluated and modified them to ensure their maximal benefit for the employability of absolvents. Students were also given extended participation at an international conference and this motivated them to more closely cooperate with academics both from the Czech Republic and Norway. Numerous other supportive and dissemination activities, e.g. the Landscape of Environmental Studies and Educational Trails publications were prepared and published, educational excursions were taken, curriculum changes were made, etc.
