ProSPER.Net aims to develop 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.
As COP26 brought world leaders to agree on a new 10-year Work Programme on Action for Climate Empowerment to promote climate education, youth engagement, and public participation, concrete mechanisms and their implementation must be accelerated to achieve the Paris Agreement goal.
Capitalizing on the synergies and successful partnerships in our network, the Joint Research Project in 2023-2024 is aimed at developing postgraduate-level courses that are aligned with the key competencies for the implementation and reinforcement of the Paris Agreement. Its objectives are the following:
- To identify key competencies for the effective implementation and reinforcement of the Paris Agreement based on research and scientific literature; and
- To design postgraduate-level courses based on these identified competencies for co-implementation within (and beyond) the member institutions of the project proponent team.
