The arrival of MESPOM students at the University of the Aegean in Greece has become an annual tradition on the island of Lesvos. Each year since 2005, a diverse group of students from around the world have traveled to Lesvos to complete 6 weeks of coursework focused specifically on environmental issues from the unique perspective of an island ecosystem.
This portion of the MESPOM program is something that students have recollected as one of the most memorable and informative aspects of the Erasmus Mundus Master’s Course. University of the Aegean Faculty have worked diligently to welcome students and create a study module that focuses on the unique impacts of climate change within an island setting.
A Lesvos based online news publication has recently published an article focusing on the arrival of students this year. It can be found below.
