Description: Anthropogenic influences are rapidly changing coastal regions, sometimes with catastrophic consequences. REM 2010TM has radically transformed the ability to mitigate ecological degradation, improve the robustness of the coastal ecosystem and its ability to absorb human induced stress. The methodology provides sustainable development technology in building coastal resilience and promoting biodiversity. This course is taught in a highly interactive framework facilitating the interconnection between technology education and practical real-world applications. Participants learn the theoretical justifications for the approach and apply critical concepts in on-site "Field Experiences".
