NORDPLUS Intensive Course “Security and Sustainability”

Processes of globalization, which mainly develop spontaneously, without a collective direct influence of the world community, create a number of problems of international and also local security and engender new risks and challenges. Also for the countries of the Baltic Sea region, security issues are the top priority. All countries of the particular region are experiences such challenges as migration, conflicts based on different cultural backgrounds, cyber-attacks and other new challenges.One of the main aspects for secure and peaceful future is sustainable development of our planet. How to use resources in sustainable manner? How to ensure sustainable management of energy? How to reduce problems created by overpopulation – lack of resources, pollution and waste management? Those are key questions which requires knowledge and skills from those specialists and young professionals who are managing and ensuring security in the company, country or even whole region.

Those were the reasons why 5 partner Universities initiated NORDPLUS project – Intensive course on Sustainability and Security. The aim of this course was train students skills and give them knowledge about security. Also it was very important to introduce students to sustainability topic as nowadays security is not possible without sustainable development.

Students participated in lectures, workshops, practical sessions, simulations and study visits. In this Course participants were bachelor and master level students from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland. Lessons and practical seminars was led by professors from 5 partner Universities as well as invited professionals.
