History Regional Education and Information Centre for Sustainable Development in SEE (REIC) until now has organised two Summer Schools. The first Summer School related to the ‘Sustainable Development and Environmental Integration in a European Prospective’ was held in Cervia, Italy from 5-16/ 09, 2005. The second Summer School entitled ‘Environmental Integration in Territorial Management and Planning’ was held in Sarajevo, BiH and Nature Park Lonjsko Polje, Croatia from 28/ 08 – 10/ 09, 2006.
Concept The joint Summer School for 2007 is thematically dedicated to the ‘conflicts’ in space consequentially arising from the building and work of large energy infrastructures, as for instance thermo and hydro power plants. The consequences relate to both environmental and social aspects.

Geographical locations that have been chosen for the theoretical and practical teaching – Tuzla in BiH and Kladovo/ Djerdap in Serbia. Both locations are in situ examples of specific correlation existing between the energy infrastructure and space. The case of Djerdap has also a cross-border component including Serbia and Romania.
