The Thematic Environmental Networks (TEN) Program on Sustainability carries out training and research in the field of sustainable development with particular attention to emerging economies.

TEN is conceived as a knowledge-sharing platform for competent authorities in the field of Sustainable Development and promotes the collaboration among Academia, Governments and Enterprises through an international network of more than 500 experts whose expertise span the three pillars of sustainable development: economic, environmental and social.

Environmental Management (Waste, Water, Air), Green and Circular Economy, Energy, Food Security are among the focus areas addressed by the TEN Program.

Capacity building, stakeholders’ engagement, dissemination and networking are its core activities, approached through a participatory and learning-by-doing methodology.  In particular, TEN: 

• offers advanced trainings for policy-makers, civil servants and experts on a variety of topics dealing with Sustainability;
• develops research activities on the main areas of environmental management, with specific focus on developing countries;
• promotes workshops and conferences in cooperation with international renowned institutions.

The TEN Program offers scientific support to the VIU Academic programs in which environment and sustainable development are key elements of discussion, and facilitates VIU participation in international networks on sustainability as UN Global Compact, Global Compact Network Foundation, UN SDSN, ASviS, GUPES.
