UI GreenMetric World University Rankings collaborates with 7 of the world's best campuses, namely University of Sao Paolo (Brazil), University of Indonesia (Indonesia), El Bosque University (Colombia), University of Szeged (Hungary), University of Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), Escuela Superior Politécnica de Chimborazo (Ecuador) and the University of Sousse (Tunisia), held a series of free training events for students of all background, whether they’re undergraduate, magister, or doctoral students which will be conducted online. This event itself will be held from 8 September 2021 - 14 January 2022, guided by experts in the field of SDGs from 7 countries. In here, students will be invited to discuss and be introduced to the most challenging question facing our generation: how the world can evolve in ways that are socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable. The course discusses the complex interplay between the economy, social life and our planet's physical environment, as well as the consequences of human activities on the planet's environment and the solutions. The first training event was held on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at 09.00 AM (Brazil Time, UTC-3) with the main speaker, Prof. Tadeu Fabricio Malheiros from the University of Sao Paulo and Prof. Ouajdi Korbaa from the University of Sousse.
