REAL training with U&We and ZeroMission on Carbon Trading and Ecosystem Services on 20./21. October
How can social and environmental science research be integrated into market approaches to sustainable development? What are the opportunities and risks involved? What do we gain by looking at research on human-environment interactions from a business perspective?
As part of the REAL training events, the Resilience in East African Landscapes ITN and our industrial partners U& We and ZeroMission (a Stockholm based consulting firm for companies and organizations seeking to increase their sustainability) arranged a two day workshop that aimed at bridging the gap between scientific research and business approaches to carbon trading and ecosystem services.
During the first part of the workshop, representatives from U& We and ZeroMission presented their work and projects they are involved in. The second part of the event provided an opportunity for the participants to develop business proposals based on their research, experimenting with ways of making their expertise and research useful from an industry perspective.
