Practices, Tools and Technologies for the Green Transition
The learning programme aims at inspiring and enabling you to address the triple planetary crisis relating to climate change, loss of biodiversity and natural habitats, and pollution and waste. The programme will facilitate an understanding of the nature of the crisis, but the main focus will be on the responses: the solutions and opportunities for action.
The opportunities for green, circular and environmentally sustainable development will be assessed within a framework of Green Transition Principles and the Circular Economy approach while referring to both the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. In the process, you will meet actors in eco-communities, utility companies, public authorities and private businesses. We will visit many exciting cases including resource and energy-generating waste-water plants, recycling stations, innovation-hubs, agricultural farms, and green and climate resilient urban areas. You will learn about practices, tools and technologies for the green transition– but also about how green transition may be organized and financed, and we will reflect on how the learning may be applied.
To support the internalization of the learning, you will develop an action plan based on a challenge in the home organisation. The learning programme is a three-phased process: Phase 1 in the home country – with webinars and start-up of the Action Plan process, Phase 2 will take place in Denmark and will involve excursions, presentations and debates – along with work on the Action Plan. Phase 3 will take place in the home country and will focus on the implementation of the Action Plan.
The course targets policy- and decisionmakers and staff from government, civil society, and private sector working within Green Transition, including Green Growth and Environmental Sustainability. More participants from each organisation are welcome, as it facilitates and strengthens the Action Plan activities.
