Challenge

Hundreds of young students in Brazil have transformative ideas for the socio-environmental challenges in the world and many talented students have a great potential to pursue sustainability inside the world work. However, many of them do not have the opportunity to develop these ideas due to lack of resources to seek more knowledge and guidance. This project will offer 20 scholarships in ESCAS - School of Conservation and Sustainability, a place where the science is for and with the society.

Solution

ESCAS promotes socio-environmental and sustainability knowledge in Brazil through short courses, Professional Master in Conservation and Sustainability and MBA in Social and Environmental Business. It trained more than 6.4 thousand people since 1996 - more than 300 with scholarships. With a Scholarship Fund, we will promote this knowledge to more students, transforming them into professionals which promote innovative solutions that contribute to a fair, caring and sustainable Brazilian Society.

Long-Term Impact

With this campaign, we will start the ESCAS Scholarship Fund, which will be continuous from now. With it, we will amplify school capacity to give socio-environmental knowledge to more students in a long term. We aim to benefit 20 with scholarships. And this is only the beginning, a seed that can grow to benefit more. The proposal is empower a mass of highly qualified professionals in the socio-environmental field to revert the negative impact and socio-environmental losses for the past decades.
