The First Edition of SDCR Summer School is linked to Jean Monnet Module Application No 611698-EPP-1-2019-1-IT-EPPJMO-MODULE "Sustainability Disclosure in Corporate Reporting. Improvement and harmonization of best practices in European Union" that has been selected for EU support (2019-2022).

It will provide to participants 12 days of lectures, seminars, workshops, class assignments, discussions, field trips and group exercises.

The program will look into how, local and global actors, take into account the needs to disclose on non financial information. The aim is to promote teaching, research, discussion and dissemination of information on sustainability reporting, i.e. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) related activities at the European level in the context of the adoption of the Directive EU/95/2014 focussing on Disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by large companies and groups. The program aims to deepen participants’ knowledge, understanding and building their competencies on the role and value of sustainability reporting.

Aim of the program is to give participants the possibility to improve their knowledge and grow their skill-set regarding to:

  • Intercultural, financial, economic and sociological aspects of corporate social responsibility in the business and finance context
  • Directive EU/95/2014 and its implementation in the European Union
  • Climate change: the role of economic system at local and global leve
  • Co-creation of viable pathways to long-term sustainable initiatives in profit and non profit sectors
