Wind, Waves and Water - an introduction to renewable energy

General description

"We did not inherit the earth from our parents, we borrowed it from our children."

In a world where 80% of all electricity comes from fossil fuels, new forms of energy are needed. Wind, waves and water are three energy sources ready to take over. Uppsala University conducts high level research on renewable energy and now you can take part of this knowledge through lectures, labs and excursions. Our enthusiastic professors will give you a new understanding of this exciting and important field.

Of course there will be more during your weeks here than just school. On your own two wheels you will experience this city of students and bikes. The old city center with the beautiful cathedral, the vivid student clubs, and the wonderful surrounding landscape are a must. And in a city with 40000 students you are certain to never be bored. Get ready for two unforgettable weeks!
