ICTP scholarships for 2015 Green Growth & Travelism Summer School
It will again feature a unique blend of classroom and field visit activity – including the national park and the EU institutions.
With three Heads of State Summits on Financing, Sustainability and Climate in 2015, it is clear that the world is shifting to a Green Growth path and that the Travelism (Travel&Tourism) sector has vital adaptation opportunities and challenges. This is an ideal time and place for engagement.
The Summer School will be informative and interactive with leading professors and guest speakers from around the world.
Subjects covered will include Green Growth, Sustainable Mobility, Climate Change, Social Inclusion, Industry and Destination Adaptation, as well as Big Data, Project Financing, and Mobile Technology. Debates will include the Maurice Strong Reflections evening, with a leading international speaker, in the gallery of world-renowned artist, Koen Vanmechelen.
The school will be held in Hasselt’s city campus, whose top-class learning facilities blend into a brilliantly restored old prison. The city itself, close to Brussels, is a model of historic charm, post-industrial restoration, and sustainability vision. Accommodation will be at the Holiday Inn adjacent to the campus and close to the city center.
The Summer School is open to graduates in academia and managers in government, industry, and civil society. The fee for the five-day event, with accommodation, is a low 575 euro.
ICTP will again be a sponsor and is offering scholarships covering all tuition and accommodation for three selected registered attendees.
