The workshop on “Future of graduate education in sustainable development: Fostering the next generation of professionals” will be organized on 29 November 2018 from 09:00-16:30 hours at Ambassador Hotel, Bangkok. The event is organized by the Department of Development and Sustainability (DDS) of the School of Environment, Resources and Development (SERD).

Background: 

In the past decades, Asia has experienced rapid economic growth, socio-political changes and globalization along with challenges such as climate change, natural disasters, volatile global markets and widening income gaps. In this context many communities, both rural and urban, are becoming increasingly vulnerable. Disparity and conflict along lines of gender, religion, ethnicity, age and race continue to add to the complexity of these issues. Now more than ever there is a need to foster professionals who are able to effectively engage with these multifaceted development issues and advocate for sustainable and innovative solutions.

AIT as a leading international postgraduate institution, since 1959, has actively worked with public and private sector partners and leading universities to serve the region. Our graduates today are leaders in national and international organizations across the public, private and non-profit sectors. Our goal at AIT is to keep up this tradition of excellence and continue to provide cutting edge curriculum and training for the professionals of tomorrow.

Expected Participants: 

Participants will be representatives from both public and private sector organizations that future AIT graduates may be able to contribute to; and/or organizations where AIT can provide capacity building for organizational staff. Alumni of academic programs under the Department of Development and Sustainability who are professionals in their respective fields are also invited
