The next session of the GAMP Academy on Sustainability will be hosted by Alumniportal Deutschland. It is jointly organized by the German-Arab Masters’ Programmes (GAMP) EMEA and INEMA in conjunction with GIZ. The webinar will give a comprehensive overview about current topics in the interface between economics, education and sustainable development with a special focus on the Middle East and North Africa Countries (MENA). How do economy and education influence each other and what is currently done to overcome obstacles in these fields? Speakers both from academics and practice look at these facets from their specific perspectives. They will raise questions and show different ways to tackle the challenges and chances the MENA region is facing.
