In October 2023, AIVP will launch the second edition of its distance learning programme, created in partnership with the International Institute of Port Cities (IIPC), based in Chile. The aim of this training programme is to support the various stakeholders of the ports and territories in their efforts to achieve the sustainable development objectives. The programme is available in French and Spanish.

The programme is structured around the 10 commitments of the 2030 Agenda, namely: 1) adaptation to climate change; 2) energy transition and circular economy; 3) sustainable mobility; 4) renewed governance; 5) investment in human capital; 6) port culture and identity; 7) quality food for all; 8) port-city interface; 9) health and quality of life; 10) protection of biodiversity.

The programme comprises 5 successive courses:

  • Governance of port cities
  • Sustainable economy of port cities
  • Urban and natural environments of port cities
  • Heritage and culture of port cities
  • Prospective of port cities

The objectives of this programme are :

  • acquire a systemic and interdisciplinary understanding of port cities.
  • to put into perspective the issues encountered in their professional practice by contextualising and comparing them.
  • reflect on ways of moving towards a more sustainable port city.

The programme has a duration of 72 hours, divided into 5 courses or modules. Classes in French are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 16:00 to 17:30 (CET, UTC+2), via the Zoom platform.
