Jenny Garcia (UK), Dima Yankova (Bulgaria),  Marisa Henry (Canada) and Dr Dai Morgan (ESD Deputy Director) are participating in a workshop running  from 10th - 14th of April in Universitat  Politecnica de Valencia, Spain. It also involves students and staff from KTH Chalmers (Sweden), University of British Columbia (Canada)  and the host institution.

 

The programme is designed to bring together students and teachers of sustainable development to work on real challenges on the theme of impact assessment, in a week long intensive residential workshop. Small groups working across three projects will develop responses to a brief for a multi-stakeholder impact assessment, which they will present to practitioners at the end of the week. The projects which have been proposed for analysis include the refurbishment of houses in the Font Roja national park, the refurbishment of an old lighthouse as a carbon neutral innovation centre and the rehabilitation of traditional gardens of buildings in  the Benicalap neighbourhood of Valencia.
