Good Bye SC70 – and Merry Christmas!

On Tuesday, December 13th, we sent the last course participants in 2016 on their way towards a new and sustainable urban agenda. Four weeks of intensive course work, but also coping with the challenges (cold temperatures) and enjoying the benefits (Christmas cake and sweets) at this time of the year in Germany are over.

CIPSEM will welcome the 40th UNEP/UNESCO/BMUB International Postgraduate Course on Environmental Management for Developing and Emerging Countries in January 2017.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

For a new urban agenda and a better urban future …

… only two weeks after the conclusion of the HABITAT-III conference in Quito, 21 new participants from Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Guyana, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Lesotho, Mauritius, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, Thailand and Vietnam have arrived to learn and share about their experiences in the 70th UNEP/UNESCO/BMUB International Short Course on Sustainable cities. The course under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Bernhard Müller thereby follows the concept of developing and implementing a new urban agenda.
