In a few weeks, BrainUpLab will be hosting a training course on Environmental Sustainability and Fairtrade. And what better place to talk about this theme than Sicily? With its gorgeous landscapes and splendid beaches, surrounded by crystal blue waters, Sicily is a constant reminder of how beautiful nature is, and of the importance to protect our environment.
This training course, which is eligible for the Erasmus+ funding programme, aims at offering the participants a panoramic and innovative view on environmental sustainability and Fairtrade, in order to increase their awareness of these issues, sharpen their professional knowledge, and ultimately be able to commit in the most effective way to the goals identified by the EU in its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
During the training course, the participants will gain knowledge on this highly critical subject, regarded as such both by the EU and the UN, through a very interactive training programme combining formal and informal education. They will thus enjoy learning about sustainability and Fairtrade by talking with professionals on the subject, and going on study visits, all that under Sicily’s nice September weather.
They will also visit the natural reserve of Marinello, a lagoon formed a hundred years ago in the province of Messina and do a workshop in a Fairtrade supply chain. And finally, as we are in Italy, they will enjoy eating delicious culinary specialties –they will even learn to cook a few of them – and be able to meet each other and socialize on their first days here during an aperitivo specially prepared for them at a local venue.
We hope they will enjoy their time with us and that the training course will meet all their expectations
