A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution, including how each program addresses the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainability:

The UCC Sustainability Summer School, held in May 2018, was a collaboration between UCC, UNAL (National University of Colombia) and UMASS Lowell. The week long summer school took an interdisciplinary approach to exploring themes of sustainability at local, national and international level. The school focused on the Sustainable Development Goals and how society can “make sustainability work” through incorporating people, planet, peace, prosperity and partnership. The summer school built on the existing partnerships between the institutions and enable knowledge-sharing around each institution’s strengths and specific contexts. The programme included lectures, keynotes, group works and site visits.
