Are we able to save this global village? Join us in the game and see what it means to make sustainable decisions.

The main objectives of the workshop are:

• introducing and explaining the idea of sustainable development;
• making the participants aware of the interdependence between the environment, the economy, and society;
• developing measures that foster sustainable development;
• presenting development indicators that reference the principles of sustainable development.

The workshop will be held on Monday, March 27 between 9-16 (7 hours with coffee and lunch breaks) at the university (12th floor, room 1222). It will be conducted in English. Participation is free, but as there is a limit of places the order of applications counts. Please, note that it  is possible to obtain justification for the absence in other standard classes if you need it.

The tools used for the workshop include:
