About Us


The field exercise courses are part of a unique curriculum that emphasizes practical exercises to acquire various skills related to sustainability, rather than simply gaining a superficial knowledge of the subject matter. The coursework includes training in systems thinking for being able to assess circumstances properly from a comprehensive perspective, the acquisition of facilitation and negotiation skills necessary for building a consensus, the development of the ability to think globally, and an understanding of cultural diversity so that work can be performed responsibly in an international venue, and a wide range of experiences through case studies having to do with various examples of global cooperation and environmental issues. Students from different specializations and cultural backgrounds give serious thought to issues related to sustainability through demanding exercises and projects and acquire practical knowledge and skills by stimulating one another intellectually. GPSS-GLI features a strong focus on "Field Exercise".
