The UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the University for Peace (UPEACE) in Costa Rica are now inviting applications for a new certificate online training course on Climate Change, International Law and Human Security. This six-week online course will be co-taught by experts from both institutions and will take place from 6 October to 14 November 2014.
The course is intended for staff members of the United Nations and its agencies; staff members of other intergovernmental, government and non-governmental organizations; academics; practitioners; and students, who are working or researching in fields related to climate change and environment, human rights, international law, development, and migration, among others. UPEACE and UNU-EHS aim to ensure equal gender and geographical distribution across the selected participants.
This one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary course will offer both a legal and scientific perspective, underlined by a strong human rights component. The course is meant to address policymakers, and practitioners, as well as lawyers and researchers.
The deadline for applications is 20 September 2014.
