Description

ProSPER.Net is an alliance of leading universities in the Asia-Pacific region that are committed to integrating sustainable development into postgraduate courses and curricula. The network, dubbed ProSPER.Net: Promotion of Sustainability in Postgraduate Education and Research Network, is developing a new generation of leaders who can best tackle global sustainability challenges in the face of rapid environmental degradation. By changing the way higher education institutions teach students about sustainability, ProSPER.Net improves the ways in which future professionals manage sustainability issues across a wide variety of disciplines.

Bringing together a diverse group of individuals – from academia, the public sector, the business community, and civil society from around the Asia-Pacific region, both from the social sciences and natural sciences, participants will learn about the challenges and opportunities in relation to disaster risk reduction (DRR) and management.

The week-long programme will expose future sustainability leaders to engineering principles and tools that can aid in formulating sustainable solutions for the Asia-Pacific region, taking into consideration the vulnerability of the region to both man-made and natural disasters. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills in the context of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Fellowships to cover the costs of participation are available.
