UN Winter School On SCP In Asia And The Pacific

Following up on the implementation of the  SWITCH-Asia Regional Policy Support Component programme and the Asia-Pacific Road Map of the 10 Years Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production, the upcoming "UN Winter School on Sustainable Consumption and Production in Asia and the Pacific", to be held on 7-20 December 2014 at the AIT Campus, Bangkok, Thailand is open for applications.

This unique event is organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and its partners, United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), and the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).

The strategic objective of the Winter School is to improve the knowledge of future decision makers in Asia and the Pacific in the area of SCP and, thus, contribute to the design and implementation of policies, business models and practices that can promote sustainable resource management in a lifecycle perspective for goods and services produced and used by governments, business and civil society. This is an exclusive learning opportunity for young professionals, including post-graduate students, to be equipped with skills that can support their professional and research activities.

Over two weeks participants will have the opportunity to interact with distinguished professors, researchers, practitioners and experts on SCP, follow master classes, participate in interactive scenario based exercises and simulation games, learn from each other, and build a network of young SCP professionals in the Asia and the Pacific region.

Scholarships are available for participants from developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. Full information and details about the application process is available at:
