A special challenge when educating environmental scientists lies in transmitting a system-orientated way of thinking and working to the students, which means, that environmental spheres like anthroposphere, atmosphere, biosphere, geosphere and hydrosphere are considered. This should enable students to analyze complex environmental problems, to produce possible solutions and to communicate with experts from different fields. With case studies as a fundament, educational elements have been developed at the department of environmental science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. They allow an introduction to the ability of solving environmental problems already during the first year. During approximately 50 hours of theoretical lectures and seminars and another 40 hours of independent exercises, system-orientated structuring of environmental problems, as well as the application of various different methods for integrated scientific analysis is taught.

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
