UNEP Representative Meets with CEU Environmental Sciences Students

Mahesh Pradhan, the head of UNEP’s Environmental Education and Training Unit (EETU) in Nairobi, Kenya, spent last week at CEU as a co-director for the Summer University course titled “Bridging ICTs and Environment – Making Information Talk and Technologies Work.” The flagship program of UNEP’s EETU is the Global Universities Partnership on Environment and Sustainability (GUPES – http://www.gupes.org), of which CEU recently became a member. GUPES aims to increase the incorporation of environment and sustainability practices into universities around the world, while encouraging the interaction these universities have with UNEP.
