The four-day virtual instructor-led in-depth training will be organized using a dynamic mix of lecture-based and participatory methods customized to meet the needs of the countries’ desire to move toward an inclusive green economy transition. The delivery of the program will be based upon the latest knowledge products; capacity building materials developed by PAGE partners, and place a strong emphasis on group work and use of country-case studies. The program also features a shared virtual workspace for participants to work in a group and access necessary course materials.
 
The main academic elements will include lectures by course faculty, reading of assigned texts, seminar-style discussion of key topics, assigned readings, and case studies from developed, transitional, and developing countries. The teaching method will also include short quizzes, debates, and role-play, small group work focused on developing assignments, group presentation, discussion, and evaluation.

The Summer School is an intensive, real time (CET), fully interactive online course. It comprises two morning sessions and one afternoon session. With a focus on intensive Latin and Greek palaeography classes in parallel tracks, it also provides instruction in textual criticism and diplomatics. It includes thematic lectures, assignments, introduction to online resources, a palaeography exam and an opportunity for consultation. It gives a certificate of attendance and ECTS credits.

Following the success of our 10-day summer course ‘Music as Heritage: from Tradition to Product’ organized with CEU Cultural Heritage Studies in 2019, we will adapt our concept for an online musical heritage course. Based on the experiences of the previous course, we preserve the key academic elements, but transfer and present them in a brand-new online format.
 
The course tackles the methods and approaches of modern musicology as an integral part of heritage studies, using music as a tool for analysing and describing social changes. The course also aims to explore various aspects of musical heritage management creating audience development-focused, yet socially conscious business policies; as well as to present a contemporary and viable approach to responsible arts management.

The course will look at tangible and intangible heritage – landscape, built heritage, mobile heritage, practices, knowledge, social structures – linked to redundant industrial landscapes. It will address the question of how cultural heritage can change the cultural identity of a region promoting an optimistic future. The course aims to improve the participants’ ability to understand industrial heritage within the dynamic relationship of three levels: the macro-level of regions (spatial planning and territorial development), the meso-level of settlements (urban planning), and the micro-level of buildings. The course will look at the regeneration not only of individual buildings but also of entire regions. However, adaptive reuse of buildings and complexes will be a special focus.

Decision-makers are faced with the constant challenge of maintaining access to and understanding new technologies and data, as information and communication technologies (ICTs) are constantly evolving and as more data is becoming available. Despite continually improving technologies, informed decision-making is being hindered by inadequate attention to enabling conditions, e.g. a lack of in-service education and professional training. Practitioners are in a position to greatly benefit from this data revolution and to better shape management strategies and make more informed, data-driven decisions if they have a periodic overview of emerging technologies and their potential applications.
 
ISEPEI was launched in 2013 to bridge this gap between decision-makers and ICTs as a part of Eye on Earth, a global initiative comprised of a diverse set of stakeholders from around the world, striving to enable generation, maintenance and application of environmental, societal and economic data and information to support achieving sustainable development. Through a series of international Summer Universities, ISEPEI has connected United Nations agencies, intergovernmental organizations, ICT experts, and environmental practitioners, bringing professionals up-to-date on the latest advances in ICTs and their potential use in a wide variety of applications.
