Nova SBE Summer Schools

A blueprint for reaching peace and prosperity set in the future… now!

Build the world we want for 2030 and into the future. The solutions are there, and the right opportunities can pave the way. 

The time is now to unleash our common future.

In 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 ambitious goals to end poverty, fight inequality, and stop climate change by 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are within our reach, but we must commit ourselves to embrace what works and address what doesn’t.

To successfully achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda, we need to deepen our commitment and engagement and work together in disruptive and creative new ways. We all agree on what the world needs. The question is: how do we get there? That's why we need you and what you have to say. We need your inspiration, ideas, dedication, and talent. You will be taking the driver's seat to create a sustainable and long-lasting vision for 2030 and beyond.

The 2022 Edition of the Nova SBE Summer School "PROAction – Unleashing our Common Future" will take place from July 4 to 15 2022. It will focus on Climate Action, Transforming Cities, Advancing Green Growth, or Safeguarding Our Oceans Challenges to contribute to the 17 SDGs.

Which Challenge do you choose?

Now is the time for bold leadership, both individual and collective.
