A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution:
FIELD COURSE IN ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES
Field-based research, assisting students to gain technical, practical and transferable skills through field work and experiential learning. This is a one-week container course offered on different thematic areas in the field of Environmental Studies that requires no prior knowledge of research methods and practical skills.
This course will enable students to:
1. Recognise environmental and sustainability issues in context, and relate relevant principles to real problems.
2. Use different basic-level practices (for example: fieldwork planning and sampling, using specific instrumentation, collecting data in the field, recording measurements].
3. Reflect on the fieldwork experience using the knowledge gained during the course.
The CSR-School provides advanced training regarding the identification of sustainability-related business opportunities and the inclusion of responsibility in the core of one’s business strategy, in order to achieve sustainable value and formulate a more resilient organization.
The training program is envisioned as a journey that will cover all major identified areas that relate to the responsible management of sustainability. From September to December 2022, during which a minimum of 40 hours of sustainability-related knowledge and management experience will be shared, trainees will gain an up-to-date overview of major developments around the largest environmental, social and governance challenges affecting businesses nowadays.
During the 10-part Webinar series, the participants will watch lectures by distinguished academic faculty members, discuss relevant case studies, learn about best practices that have been implemented by experienced senior professionals and exchange views and thoughts around the incorporation of relevant theory into the CSR initiatives of their own organization.
