Sustainability, Inc

General description

Picture yourself in 30 years. You look around and what do you see? How clean is the air? The oceans? Are animals going extinct?

The answer is, no. But only if we move towards a sustainable way of life.

In our Course, you will learn what needs to be done to have a Sustainable environment. YOU will be able to make a difference, through a better understanding of how our environmental system works.

Here in Almada, where the beaches are beautiful, the Portuguese Cuisine is as tasty as advertised you can meet new and lovely people and learn so much about our rich culture!

You’re guaranteed to love it!
