ONLINE COURSE: Rainwater Management – Change Climate Change

The regeneration of the water cycle is an essential factor in the endeavor to reverse climate change. This intricate system plays a multifaceted role in maintaining global temperature equilibrium, mitigating extreme weather events, and regulating carbon distribution. By reenforcing the water cycle’s natural mechanisms through reforestation, wetland preservation, and sustainable water management, we not only foster increased water availability for ecosystems and human populations, but also enhance its vital function as a carbon sink. The restoration of the water cycle holds the potential to harmonize Earth’s climate patterns, counteracting the adverse effects of greenhouse gas emissions and catalyzing a restorative trajectory for our planet’s environmental stability.

Our online course will provide you with a solid foundation in the basic principles of rainwater management and a range of practical water-management measures that can be applied across various contexts against drought and in preventing floods. Theory lessons are complemented by on-site videos showing examples of how principles are put into practice in various case studies from southern Portugal.

Program Details

Join us for an interactive learning adventure, drawing on our experience in the following fields:

  • Natural Water Cycles: Disruption and Restoration
  • Basic Planning: Inventory
  • Basic Rainwater Retention Measures
  • Implementation of Basic Measures
  • Rainwater Retention Basins (Lakes)
  • Master Planning

The course incorporates study material and interviews with ecology specialists from Tamera and the surrounding region, interactive study assignments and an online platform to share insights and engage with fellow participants.

This is a self-paced course which is available at any time. When we initiated it for the first time, we’ve offered 2 webinars where participants were able to ask questions and interact directly with our ecology specialists. The recordings of these webinars are available in the study platform as soon as you sign up.

 

Time Commitment

At the start of the course, on September 15, you will get access to the study material. You can distribute your study time as you want. We recommend at least 6 hours a week for 3 weeks to take part in the course in an active way at a good pace, with enough time to write your contributions and to interact with other participants.

The minimum amount of time you’ll need to go through the course content without interacting and contributing is around 8 hours.
