Why take this course?
Join our unique course located in the stunning environment of the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta, and gain valuable insights into DECARBONIZATION and SUSTAINABILITY and how to provide consulting support to organizations in these areas. You’ll learn how to align your goals with global sustainability efforts while discovering BLUE CARBON – the carbon storage process found in coastal soils, including seagrasses, salt marshes, and mangroves. The course explores mangrove ecosystems, their potential for decarbonization, coastal protection and their rich biodiversity, as well as other ecosystem services and their relevance for communities, along with the emerging concept of the BLUE ECONOMY.
This course will have an experiential dynamic, developed through active learning activities that allow the expression of personal reflections and common commitments which can be applied in both public and private organizations, and which can serve as an impetus for the creation of new initiatives in academia, the private sector, government and communities.
