Description

The GEM (Green Energy Management)-SILKWAY (the former GEM) 2024 Summer school is at its 11th year. GEM- SILKWAY is an International project, now involving more than 17 partners all over the world.

In process of energy transition, reflections on issues of public concern that affect cultures and societies at the global level are needed. The aim of GEM-SILKWAY CENTRA ASIA is to adopt a cross-cultural perspective in analysing the meaning of concepts like sustainability and human development.

In particular, the Summer School will be focused on the transformation of geopolitics in relation to energy crises, starting from the ongoing changes occurred in Central Asian area. Students will thus benefit of lectures, debates with international scholars and students, cultural activities, and visits in place of interest.
