The Research Fellowship Program recruits young professionals interested in scientific, socio-economic and policy issues related to sustainability and climate change. Fellows are early to mid-career professionals from around the world and from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from environmental studies and public health to urban studies and computer science. In this unpaid program, Research Fellows volunteer a few hours-per-week and train in academic and policy research skills and are immersed in the latest trends and concepts in sustainability and climate change issues. Fellows are trained and guided by a small group of pro-bono senior experts.
Region360 is a multi-disciplinary, international initiative spearheaded by the Environic Foundation International that promotes sustainability and climate change education in Latin America by applying rigorous, data-driven analytical methods and promoting educational and policy initiatives to achieve resilient, healthy, and sustainable societies.
We have a multidisciplinary, international team with presence in Washington, DC, Central and South America. We are currently conducting research and developing educational and policy tools in three areas: climate and hydrological modeling, sustainable economies and sustainability policy to help local stakeholders achieve the SDG’s and develop mitigation and adaptation strategies in the face of climate change.
Our Sustainable Societies Course is now the gateway course for the Certificate in Sustainable Innovation at Virginia Commonwealth University.
The Certificate in Sustainable Innovation is designed to provide students in any VCU baccalaureate program the option of adding a formal certificate program in sustainability and sustainable approaches to problem-solving. The Certificate in Sustainable Innovation will use a systems-thinking approach to problems of sustainability across all of the academic disciplines.
Global Sustainable Societies is a survey of the full range of global social, economic and environmental sustainability issues and trends. This course results in significantly increased awareness and understanding of global sustainability challenges and the types of solutions being used to tackle them.
