Organisation of scientific field trips, summer schools, wildlife tours and eco tours in Caucasus and Central Asia
Targets & Goals
Encouraging the development of ecological awareness in a region where it is not given but urgently required
Strengthen conservation projects and ecological education in Caucasus and Central Asia
Based on these principles, Central Asian and Caucasus School for Ecological Education was founded 2014 in Berlin, Germany. We work in close cooperation with scientists and environmental activists from Caucasus and Central Asia.
Our aim is to share with students, explorers and curious travellers the biological variety and cultural treasures of these countries. At the same time, we draw attention to severe ecological issues in the region that are closely linked to economic and sociological tensions.
Facing these issues consciously and critically, along with thinking about sustainable solutions on the basis of transcultural exchange – that’s what CACSEE stands for.
The CACSEE-Institute focuses on four tasks
Our scientific field trips enable the exploration of unique eco-systems, sensitize for ecological awareness on a global scale and bring together nature enthusiastic people. We are convinced that sharing the students’ knowledge with the locals will help spread the idea of nature conservation.
The expeditions of CACSEE offer a framework for local scientists and conservationists to present regional issues, campaigns and research ideas to interested junior academics as well as helping to establish international networks.
