About the event

Department of landscape design and sustainable ecosystems of agrarian and technological institute RUDN University invites students, PhD students and other young scientists to participate in the international online summer school “Monitoring, modeling and managing of urban soil and green infrastructure (3MUGIS)”. Summer school provides participants with knowledge of modern environmental consequences and possibilities of urbanization with an emphasis on special soil function.

The main goal is the development of international cooperation, the development of skills in the monitoring, modeling and mapping of urban soils and green infrastructure in various climatic conditions and in an anthropogenic-transformed environment.

At the end of the program, students will better understand ecology and biogeochemistry of urban soils and plants, advances in monitoring and modeling of urban soils and green infrastructures, role of nature-based solutions and urban green infrastructure for human health and well-being.
