Summer School – “A Metropolis with a green heart”
In July 2009 the project of the International Summer School “A Metropolis with a Green Heart” and follow-up activities were organised and managed under the leadership of two Slovak universities: the Comenius University in Bratislava (Faculty of Natural Sciences) and the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (Institute of Management) in close cooperation with partner universities from Visegrad countries. The school was also supported by the International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE).

The summer school was organised by Mária Kozová and Katarína Pavlicková from the Comenius University and Maroš Finka from the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava as an accompanying event of the European IALE Conference 2009 (Salzburg, Austria, July 12-16, 2009) and was open to Master/PhD students and early stage scientists. The Summer School represented the activity supporting exchange of information in the field of education and sciences (e.g. planning system, protection of the environment, landscape and urban ecology, sustainable cities and others) and cross-border cooperation among participants and lecturers from Visegrad countries but also other countries.
