Part of the summer school will take place aboard the Brabander sailboat of Klaipeda University, sailing through the southeastern part of the Baltic Sea, conducting tests and collecting samples. Participants will also study the unique coastal environment of the Curonian Spit and the Nemunas River Delta, learning about the impact and solutions related to climate change, loss of biodiversity, and human aspects of the unique Baltic Sea environment.
