Project Description

A course onboard tall ship STS Frederyk Chopin

The journey lasts for 7 days, in Baltic or nearby European waters. The start and end point differs from year to year. The course has both a theoretical and practical part. The theoretical part consists of lectures, presentations, workshops and teamwork on Education for Sustainable Development. The practical part focuses on the teamwork of the daily life on board a tall ship: sailor’s duties such as night watches, furling sails and kitchen duties. Frederyk Chopin is a sail training ship.

In 2019 the cruise went from Szczecin in Poland on the 26th of June and ended in Aalborg, Denmark on the 3rd of July. For the program and presentations 2019, please see: https://www.balticuniv.uu.se/education/sail/sail-for-teachers/
