The PSU Faculty of Environmental Management and Trier University, Germany, jointly organized the Summer School 2016 titled Garbage and Waste Water Management Sustainability, held from July 25-29 and August 1-5, 2016 at the PSU Faculty of Environmental Management. The objectives of this project were: to impart knowledge and experiences about environmental technologies and garbage and waste water management from professional teachers to participating students; and to create a network for cooperation to exchange academic and research knowledge between PSU and other foreign countries. Participants in this project had the chance to take the knowledge gained to apply it for their research and enhance their work efficiency, as well as to apply it for solving environmental problems in the community. They also had the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with other participants.
