Abstract:INCAMP project is developing an International Master’s Degree in the Carbon Neutral Management of sport marinas. In this article we present a draft on the distribution of the Master, with main learning materials that will be taught. The content has been divided into paths, modules and subjects, as following: 6 Fundamental modules; 18 Subjects; Practical and a Dissertation. Subjects of the Master has been selected to give the appropriate knowledge to the future students interested in Carbon Neutral Management of sport marinas. INCAMP has been created to meet future skills needs and to enhance the opportunities for cooperation between Higher Education, Vocational Educational Training and Industry, providing opportunities for cooperation among stakeholders as well as the exchange and transfer of knowledge to increase know-how.
Throughout the master, students will be taught to understand and investigate the major processes and change drivers which contribute to climate conditions in the earth system at different scales, among them, the understanding of the interdependencies between the grand cycles (water, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus) in the Sport Marinas Management System. Furthermore, they will analyse the roles played by the biosphere in global and local environmental change: how is it affected by environmental change and how can changes in the biosphere affect global change? A macro-scale view of global biosphere function in Earth history and the global impact of humanity, putting contemporary environmental change into wider context. Human systems of knowledge, values, organization, technology, and behaviour will be examined in relation to environmental change in an evolutionary and social development context. What is the utility of viewing human societies as systems? How do the complexity, diversity, stratification, and resource management strategies of human societies shape their contributions and responses to critical environmental parameters and challenges? The module introduces relevant cognitive, social, economic, and human ecological concepts and theory to understand historical developments in social-ecological systems and address contemporary issues of sustainability and wellbeing in an increasingly populous and globalised society. Specifically, the students will investigate the role of energy systems in causing and mitigating climate change for carbon neutral management of sport marinas. Debates and major trends in the role of technologies, economics, human behaviour, social change and governance in avoiding dangerous anthropogenic climate change.
