Participants explore the theme of pathways to sustainability through a mixture of workshops, lectures, outdoor events and focused interaction with STEPS Centre members.

The Summer School takes place at IDS on the Sussex University campus, near Brighton, UK. The deadline for applications is 17.00 GMT on 29 January 2017. There is a fee to attend, but scholarships are available.
