The International Programme on the Management of Sustainability (IPMS) is a one-of-a-kind course designed to teach strategies and innovative approaches to meet the challenges of sustainability in the public, private and non-profit sectors. The courses are taught by professors from Cambridge, USA, and other world leading sustainability experts. The faculty is headed by Professor William Moomaw of the Fletcher School of Tufts University, one of the first scientists who focused on researching climate change.
The faculty combined with participants from carefully chosen cultural backgrounds and stakeholder perspectives, provides a unique and challenging learning experience.
The objective of the IPMS is to train participants in the techniques of multilateral dialogue to resolve the conflicts that arise in the context of implementing sustainable development. The IPMS teaches a mutual gains or win-win approach to negotiation. On the basis of role-playing exercises, lectures and discussion groups an integration of theory and practice is achieved that enables a dynamic, interactive learning process.
