To develop these skills among students, we have organized an international online course on project-oriented learning. In this course, proactive students from different countries and regions split into teams, select problem water bodies and, together with the world’s leading experts in the field of wastewater treatment and environmental technologies, create a project to restore the ecological state.
As part of the course, teams go through a series of online conferences where they need to defend their project in front of other teams and experts.
The result of the training are not only ready-to-implement projects for the rehabilitation of the ecosystems at the most important water bodies, but also cohesive teams of motivated future specialists.
In April 2022, AEU Club successfully finished the first year of the project at the offline workshop in Bali, Indonesia. The teams from Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, Russia, Thailand, and Vietnam had defended their projects in the course of online teleconferences and prepared high-quality designs of wastewater treatment facilities for specific waterbodies in their countries. The projects will be turned into scientific articles published in an international scientific periodical.
