The "Ocean" Degree, presented during the Oceans Conference, has its approval to be submitted this month to the Agência de Avaliação e Acreditação do Ensino Superior. A three-year interdisciplinary course will be a world first and is a partnership between Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Universidade do Algarve. Students will study topics related to the ocean to gain a transversal vision that allows them to work in the private or public sector, to help companies to position themselves by finding new forms of business, creating companies, or support institutions to design and consolidate public policies in the ocean area. To fulfill the course objective are also involved external partner entities, which will participate in the teaching of subjects ranging from oceanography to nautical space planning, going through interdisciplinary challenges related to the ocean or Law and Sustainability. The faculty team core members are Assunção Cristas (Nova School of Law) Júlia Seixas (FCT), Antonieta Cunha e Sá (Nova SBE), Regina Salvador (FCSH) and Roberto Henrique (IMS).
We all have a role to play
With just ten years to go, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise. We want to take a stand and we are calling on our community to showcase how they are contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, whilst influencing more and more people to unravel their role to play.
Here, you will find four different ways your ideas can flourish, dialogue can be enhanced, and action can take place. You can choose one or all four, and Nova SBE will be there to support you all the way and guarantee tangible change.
We all have a role to play, and this is your way in.
