Places and Local Communities – Workshop
The main purpose of the course is understanding how local communities cope with cultural, environmental, political and social changes within isolated geographical context. This task is particularly interesting if we consider social and environmental fragile ecosystems such as tropical islands and coral atolls. A specific attention will be given to geographical, cultural, environmental and anthropological dimensions of the host community.
The course will be divided into a series of lessons and field activities (visits to tourism resorts, meetings with local actors) coordinated by Italian teachers and researches. Lessons will be held at the Marine Research and High Education Centre. All field activities in the sea will be carried out in snorkelling and in any case it is not expected throughout the course that students plunge with diving equipment.
