General description

Here's our planet, so save it maybe?

The future of our world is uncertain, and as the coming working generation it is our responsibility to solve the problems we are facing. These days when financial crisis, famine as well as climate changes affects us increasingly, it is more than ever important with a long-term vision for our future development.

The key is to achieve sustainable development. Sustainable development is when the needs of the present are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

What is your first thought when you hear sustainable development? The concept of sustainability has a different meaning depending on who you ask. The aim of this Spring Course is to gather, educate and discuss sustainable development so that we can clarify the importance of it, and hopefully take a step in the right direction towards a sustainable future.

Students, which means us, are after all the future. If YOU want to know everything there is to know about sustainable development, then apply to our awesome Summer Course 2013! We can assure you that it's gonna be EPIC! If you're enthusiastic about our world and curious about swedish parties, APPLY!

Together we can save the world!!!
