Global Sustainability Pratice

Penn State piloted the Global Sustainability Practice (GSP) Immersive in summer of 2017 as an early deliverable for the Penn State UNECE Partnership on Sustainable Energy and Buildings. This unique learning experience featured leadership development activities, change agent skill building, and hands-on experience with regenerative/living systems principles. The initial GSP offering attracted over 700 applicants from around the world from which 17 were selected representing China, India, Iran, Ireland, Kuwait, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Spain, and the U.S.

Plans are underway to build upon this successful pilot and develop a suite of educational programs including undergraduate, graduate, and professional education offerings focused on sustainability in the built environment in the context of the framework in participants’ home countries.
