International School of Sustainability
The International School of Sustainability (EIS) is an educational initiative resulting from a partnership between Itaipu Binacional and Parque Tecnológico Itaipu (PTI-BR). This initiative aims to offer, in a didactic way, an exchange of knowledge about concepts, experiences and socio-environmental actions that have been carried out by Itaipu Binacional in its territory of influence, during its 40-year trajectory, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Based on these socio-environmental practices, EIS intends to share methodologies and results, as well as to promote a systemic view of the territory and its management and mobilization processes focusing on sustainable activities. Thus, with this course on Management for Territorial Sustainability, EIS contributes to the expansion of knowledge networks on sustainable management. Available through the Distance Learning system (online), this course is virtual and self-instructional.
Parque Tecnológico Itaipu was responsible for structuring the course, by developing methodologies, techniques and audiovisual resources that are used in the teaching-learning processes. The course's learning trail consists also of many supplementary resources, which are also available to the entire community, distributed through videos on Youtube and podcasts on Spotify.
The classes of the Management Course for Territorial Sustainability 2020 (Portuguese) are closed.
