Home The Coastal Ocean Environment Summer School in Ghana is an international collaboration aimed at building capacity in oceanographic and environmental sciences in Ghana. A long-term goal of the school is to increase the presence of African scientists at international science meetings. Summer schools have been held in-person every year from 2015 to 2019, and have been held virtually, in response to COVID-19, in 2020 and 2021. Pending successful funding efforts, we will continue to hold summer schools in 2022 and beyond. We have built links with institutions in Ghana and other African countries, and have incorporated research partnerships into the summer school, alongside lectures, labs, field trips, panels, and tutorials.
