A CHANGING WORLD FACING GLOBAL CHALLENGES

Today’s world faces several major environmental challenges, including pollution at various scales, the loss of biological diversity and the collapse of ecosystems, and desertification. We are in a state of climate emergency. The environmental crisis poses challenges at the economic, political, social, cultural and scientific level, requiring substantial changes in our institutions, public policies, societies, and businesses. This program meets this demand by training professionals with a hybrid approach that combines environmental sciences and the understanding of the complexity of our world, leading to sustainable solutions.
