Ecosystem services were one of the themes in the Joensuu pilot course. It was the topic of one of the small groups.
The essential part of the methods were real-life case study visits and lectures from experts. However, before the course, students got some pre-materiels and they answered assignments about those pre-materials. At the beginning of the actual course, students got some basic information about low carbon society, and climate change. On the second day of the course, students got some lectures about communication, research methods and reporting from experts. After this lectures students had three days for those case study visits which were made individually for each group.
Based on this case study visits and lectures students made their seminar presentations. In these seminar presentations, they proposed an answer to the work-related topic based problem.
