Organized by the University of Geneva in partnership with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the main objective of the Executive Summer School (ESS) on Global Environmental Policy is to provide professionals with a broad training programme in order to bridge the common gap between scientific knowledge and professional expertise related to core environmental themes.
The modules provide an intensive immersion in the latest political and scientific issues on the global environmental agenda. They link scientific knowledge, political sensitivity and practical negotiation techniques relevant to the development and implementation of both legal and voluntary international agreements.
Beyond enlarging each participant’s knowledge base, the ESS is designed to enhance concrete decision-making, problem-solving and negotiation skills.
Application Deadline: 31 March 2013
