Sustainable educational institutions

The creation and improvement of educational opportunities is essential for the sustainable development of a region. The implementation requires the cooperation of academic and non-academic educational institutions.

A four-day symposium on this topic will take place in Sardinia, a biodiversity hotspot, in October 2021 and will contribute to the establishment of a dialogue platform. Prof. Dr. Wiltrud Terlau from the International Centre of Sustainable Development (IZNE) at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (H-BRS) is organising the meeting together with the Department of Agriculture of the University of Sassari (UNISS) and other partners.

Sustainability on the Coastal and Rural Areas of Sardinia - An Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Dialogue-Platform on the Italian Island of Sardinia

Both Universities will participate with scientists and experts from the University of Bonn, BIO-Diverse, the Global Nature Fund (GNF), the Istituto Sardo di Scienze, Lettere e Arti (ISSLA), the Sardinian Regional Agency of Rural Development (LAORE) and the Sardinian Environmental Protection Agency (ARPAS), as well as students from various disciplines. The symposium itself consists of lectures, workshops, excursions and public events. A wide range of stakeholders will participate in the meeting, with a strong background in topics such as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Green Economy, biodiversity and ecosystem services as well as nature and climate protection with a focus on the coastal and rural regions of Sardinia.
