Circular Economy

Specific circumstances and motivations have stimulated ideas relevant to circularity in the past through activities such as reuse, remanufacturing or recycling.

We assessed the impact of this intervention through post-workshop evaluations, a one-year follow-up questionnaire, tracking of manuscript submissions, and an analysis of curriculum vitae.

Energy Transition and Renewable Energy in a World of Sustainable Development

Renewable energy technologies have come to the forefront of the global energy transition. Almost every country around the world has adopted a renewable energy target. This course provides an overview of socio-economic knowledge and basic techniques for understanding and assessing energy transition policies for clean energy in order to mitigate environmental and climates issues. As stated in recent REN21 report, positive developments demonstrate the central role that renewable can play in the overall energy system: solar photovoltaic, wind power, biomass energy, geothermal energy… The global objective is to ensure energy access, energy security, energy equity and environmental sustainability with respect to socioeconomic development.

Economy and Sustainable Development 1

This course is open to many different interpretations. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the economic proposals related to sustainability through three bodies of work: the first, describing the point of view presented by the leading economic theory, puts forward the idea of sustainable growth as a necessary and sufficient condition to attain sustainable development; the second, inspired by the notion of limits, attempts to establish socio-environmental constraints within which economic development should take place; the third, addressing Third World conditions, focuses on social inequalities and questions the meaning of the development concept.

Economy and Sustainable Development 2

This course brings together the disciplines of health sciences, natural sciences, social sciences, and management in one interdisciplinary Inseec U. Summer program. An “open source” curriculum will be available to students and development practitioners around the world through well-established methods of access and dissemination.
