Do you wish to gain a comprehensive overview of renewable energy as a means for fostering resilience in your community, village, country or neighbourhood? Then we invite you to join the online programme Renewable Energies for Sustainable Development.
Access to energy is a prerequisite for economic and social development, as almost every type of productive activity needs energy as an input.

The programme is developed and delivered in a partnership between Gaia Education, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the University of Strathclyde.
