is pleased to present the
We have received over 100 applications from all over the world, which you could see on this map: http://www.targetmap.com/viewer.aspx?reportId=25944.
Our applicants are talented academics and practitioners from Africa, Latin America and Asia, whose monthly incomes are 100-120 GBP. Africa, Latin America and Asia urgently need to develop new sustainable economic models to create more successful economic outcomes with less pollution, waste, resource use and impacts on climate and biodiversity. Ecological Economics can offer this unique knowledge that will have an impact for generations to come. Currently there are limited opportunities in Africa, Latin America and Asia to receive education in these areas.
What We Need
We need GBP 50 000 to offer 20 full Fellowships for talented participants in developing countries, which would cover their travel, accommodation, food and tuition during the Summer School. With the knowledge they will receive our participants will contribute to create a real change and adopt more sustainable development patterns in Africa, Latin America and Asia. We will offer fewer Fellowships if we do not reach the entire goal.
Your contributions will allow talented participants from Africa, Latin America and Asia to come to the UK and attend the Oxford Summer School in Ecological Economics 2014 and 2015. This will have a substantial long-term impact for the development of African, Latin American and Asian economies, will facilitate the transfer of knowledge and will strengthen ecological-economic communities in:
- countries with the world’s most valuable biodiversity: Brazil, China, Equador, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, South Africa;
- countries with the highest risk of climate change impacts: Thailand, India, Nigeria, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua;
- countries with highest rates of urbanisation growth: Burkina Faso, Uganda, Gambia, Tanzania, Benin, Kenya, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Guatemala,Palestine, Senegal, Malaysia
Knowlegdge of ecological economics will be absolutely vital and will have wide ranging impact for theses countries for the years to come. Our participants include members of UN staff, UK government, International Organizations, NGOs, PhD students, and even Professors! Please support our cause!
