The British-Georgian Academy hosted CENN to conduct a session with students on environmental matters within a socio-political and economic context. The session aimed to provide the students with an understanding of how environmental issues intersect with broader societal and economic trends.
The session covered CENN’s work in protecting and helping the local environment. This included an overview of the organization’s efforts to facilitate progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as reducing carbon emissions, promoting sustainable agriculture, and protecting biodiversity. The presentation also touched on CENN’s work in promoting behavior change among individuals and communities, analyzing policy frameworks to ensure they prioritize environmental concerns, and collaborating with stakeholders from various sectors.
After the presentation, there was a discussion on the political and economic implications of environmental issues. This included forestry’s impact on local ecosystems and global climate change, energy trade-offs between renewable and non-renewable sources, the circular economy’s waste reduction and recycling benefits for economic growth, and the private sector’s adoption of sustainable practices.
Overall, the session provided a comprehensive overview of environmental issues and their intersections with the political and economic spheres. It also highlighted the vital role of organizations like CENN in promoting sustainable development and protecting our planet for future generations.
