Do not miss out on the Tuesday Discussion from 16:00 till 17:00 c.t. at Leopoldstr. 11 A, room 415!

The course introduced students to a wide variety of fields, both academic and beyond, in which environmental practitioners are active. Each session provided participants with the opportunity to meet speakers who function as heads of environmental foundations, as members of environmental research institutions, green businesses, environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs), or as representatives of the Ministry of Environment. The course was discussion-based and required students to actively participate in each class. International fellows and staff from the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society were also invited to join the discussion with the students.
