The Baltic University Program (BUP) and Klaipėda University present the summer school ‘Science and Sail 2024’, which will focus on the Baltic Sea environment. Selected students will explore the sensitive Baltic Sea environment on land and at sea with leading experts from across the region.

Students will also explore the unique coastal environment of the Curonian Spit and the Nemunas Delta, and learn about the impacts of climate change, biodiversity loss, and human aspects on the unique Baltic Sea environment, as well as ways of mitigating these impacts.
