Pre-ed session 01: Orientation and workshop on the issues related to depopulation

Today started the preliminary education sessions for this summer’s program.

After brief self-introductions (students had to introduce themselves by using words starting with the letters g, s, and p, like in GSP, Global Study Program), a brief lecture about the methodology we will use in the workshops ensued. To put those explanations immediately into practice, we had a brief workshop asking students to provide examples for the different layers of issues associated with the phenomenon of depopulation.
