The Energy Transition, sustainable mobility, protecting biodiversity, human capital development, climate change adaptation, these some of the challenges AIVP has identified in the AIVP Agenda 2030 for sustainable port cities. Most of these challenges are interconnected and require new expertise from port city professionals. In several articles we have seen how port city planning and governance are transversal to all of these challenges.

The Associate Degree (Diplomado) in Port City Sustainability, in the University of Valparaiso and coordinated by AIVP expert Dr. Sabah Zrari, offers students the possibility to learn from academics and experienced professionals, how to develop a port-city vision. The degree taught in Spanish brings together the various stakeholders of port cities in a space for training, dialogue, and proposals to make port cities more sustainable. Additionally, since it is delivered in e-learning mode, it allows any Spanish-speaking person to attend regardless of their location.

There is also the possibility to apply for a scholarship, created by alumni so that other people can learn about the city-port relationship.

Courses will start in June/July 2021
