about_project About the Project:

The main purpose of the current project is to present an alternative broader view of green entrepreneurship as market driven solutions to environmental challenges and to prepare for the development of a new course on Green enterprising.

The project aim is proposed at the Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology (Project leader: Dr. Peter Schlyter, Senior Lecturer) in order to provide a platform for broadening the perspective of the educational programs in Environmental Management now offered at the cooperating universities in Sweden, Russia and Latvia by developing and including environmental entrepreneurial perspectives. This means that the programs would be more cross disciplinary, bringing in social science views, and practise oriented by creating links to Swedish, Russian and Latvian companies in the field of environmental technology or innovation.
