Teaching Acoustic Ecology

My paper is motivated by practical interest in education regarding acoustic/sonic ecology. I’m going to focus on three questions:
1. The history of soundscape education
2. The recent academic situation in the world
3. Possibilities at my university, Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design Budapest, in collaboration with other universities and institutions in the region, in accordance with the programme of CENSE.
