|Norwegian UMB's Ecosan Summer Course 2010 - Register now!|
Nearly half of the world's population is lacking adequate sanitation.
Decentralized and natural systems are often cheaper to build and
manage. In addition, systems based on separate treatment of excreta and
greywater, often termed ecological sanitation, offer new possibilities
for the design of sustainable systems.
Most well developed nations are
facing large costs in repairing and updating existing sewage
infrastructure. Decentralized and source separating systems also offer
interesting and resource efficient options for the developed world.
The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) is now offering its traditional 4-week Ecosan summer course, starting on June 1, 2010. Title: Sustainable sanitation - decentralized, natural and ecological wastewater treatment. The course will provide an overview of the field of ecological sanitation and also help develop the capacity to design and implement smaller decentralized, natural and source separating sanitation systems.
Application deadline for this summer course is March 1, 2010. The UMB website www.ecosan.no provides more detailed information on course content, lectures, costs and application process.
