Ideas for Summer Courses proposals for the Donostia Sustainability Forum

Donostia Sustainability Forum- Basque Green Deal, is a platform for the interdisciplinary treatment of sustainability from an environmental, social and economic perspective.

The Summer Courses are an important part of the Forum's program that runs throughout the year.

At this time the deadline for submitting proposals for the Summer Courses is open (until November 26) and through these lines we list some topics of interest for the next edition framed in each of the sustainability challenges of the DSF-BGD.

Come and collaborate with DSF-BGD to advance towards a more sustainable world!
