For our #SOS8 Cycle (2021/2022 academic year) we are launching a call for application for the The Mario Cucinella Scholarship “Future Visions – Continuing Education for the Post Carbon Era” for young practitioners looking for new expertise in the field of sustainability that will allow them to be highly competitive in the design professions.
In order to meet the needs of a wide range of students and professionals, the SOS School of Sustainability educational format has been re-organized according to a modular structure that facilitates multiple opportunities for access to the program. It is in fact possible to take individual modules, with durations ranging from two to eight weeks.
The Mario Cucinella Scholarship “Future Visions – Continuing Education for the Post Carbon Era” will offer 8 spots to qualified individuals for access to one of our six foundation courses:
Foundations of Sustainability
Design for Circular Economy
Green Building Management
Digital and Parametric Design
Healthy Materials and Sustainable Products
You can find all course descriptions here.
The modules forge four main professional figures that are in great demand in the field of consultancy as well as in the corporations, institutions and the third sector: Sustainability Advisor, Green Building Manager, Environmental Analyst and Circular Economy Consultant.
As SOS is a Future Factory driven by research and experimentation, we want to invest on young professionals who are looking to take their professional competences to the next level.
