It's in the WATER, it's where you came from!

General description

How much longer do you think we can exploit fossil fuels and natural gas? How much drilling, burning and polluting could the Earth take?

The time has come for using unconventional, renewable energy sources. The time has come for us to use what our planet is giving generously: the Sun, the water, the wind, the heat.

Water; it gives life, it helps grow forests, it cradles the largest living organisms, it nurtures civilizations for centuries and millennia.

Water has also got the power to light up cities! Hydropower is the only renewable energy source that is in some measure competitive with fossil fuels. It’s one of the oldest power sources on the planet, generating power when flowing water spins a wheel or a turbine, a method used by farmers as far back as ancient civilizations for mechanical tasks like grinding grain. Hydropower is a renewable energy source and provides no air pollution or toxic byproducts. It has become the leading source of renewable energy, providing more than 97% of all electricity generated by renewable sources worldwide.

In this course, you will learn about Renewable Energy Systems, focusing more on Hydropower and the investment prospects and challenges for its development.

You will spend 10 unforgettable days in Ajvar land and try the most amazing food on the Balkan! Let’s shake you up – Macedonian style!

So, don't think twice... just apply and have the BEST summer of your life!

SkopYeah is ready for you... are you ready for us? We dare you!
