The 2014 summer school ends with reflections by the conveners Allan Watt, Taru Peltola and Steve Redpath. Always a good time to learn some lessons from the whole school experience and share some challenges for the future that lies ahead. Everyone involved gains a lot of new insights from each summer school. Now that’s a highly valuable non-material benefit!
This year the creative communication of the students’ project was a land art event. Properly advertised in the village of Peyresq to invite the stakeholders.
Explaining the concept of the activity to stakeholders.
The “collaborative” turtle: let’s make art together to build a shared vision! Different parts of the turtle can represent different sectors/stakeholders of the Verdon region.
Stakeholders and researchers at work!
The final turtle
And there were other art projects like this turtle farm!
The talk by Mary Colwell-Hector on science communication was much appreciated by the audience and it sparked interesting discussions!
