In Gear – Issue 1

In Gear

Alumni newsletter of the Course for Sustainability

January 2006 | Print | Periodical

In Gear, the newsletter of the Course for Sustainability Alumni Network, seeks to build and nurture a network of civil servants and other experts dedicated to implementing the principles of sustainable development in Central and Eastern Europe. It does this by covering regionally relevant news in the field of sustainable development, reporting on how course graduates put their expertise in sustainability to use, and carrying updates on current and future sessions of the course.

Issue 1 focuses on the opening of EU accession negotiations with Turkey and Croatia and its impact on policy issues such as sustainable development. It also explores the value of systems thinking and its application in the everyday work of civil servants.
