The role of financial markets in driving the transformation towards a low-carbon climate resilient economy is fundamental to the efficient implementation of global ambitions in the post-Paris Agreement phase. Realising a successful transformation requires thought leaders to understand and critically analyse the key aspects of private capital engagement at various levels and from different sources.
The Frankfurt School – UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance (the Centre) is a strategic cooperation between UN Environment and Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.
The Centre has a long-standing track record in designing, implementing and evaluating climate and renewable energy (RE) finance projects aiming to facilitate private sector investments. One of the Centre’s primary goals is to equip thought leaders with the necessary skills to improve access to clean energy and climate finance in developing and emerging economies. With this in mind, we have the pleasure of inviting you to a complete and unique learning experience: The Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance Academy Programmes.
This course will enhance your knowledge in the following SDGs. The SWA offers professional and executive courses dedicated to the advancement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance Academy is a well-established educational course offered by the Centre. It provides participants the opportunity to learn and exchange about ambitious climate and sustainable finance
The Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance Academy is a well-established educational course offered by the Centre. It provides participants the opportunity to learn and exchange about ambitious climate and sustainable finance.
The 5-day training based in Frankfurt am Main has been designed for international public and private sector practitioners. It offers a comprehensive framework and best practices on sustainable energy financing projects in the context of international climate policy.
With two different tracks to choose from within the Climate & Sustainable Energy Academy, you have the opportunity to build a solid foundation in green finance, where you can either explore some of the bigger picture topics or go deeper into the number crunching side. Take a look at the questions below and see which profile suits you best. If you have any further questions after seeing the agendas, simply let us know.
A unique blended learning approach is applied, covering theoretical academic knowledge, applied research, and practical experience from project implementation delivered through senior educators and practitioners who share academic, technical and financial expertise.
The Centre operates in a continuum from research to project implementation, but also as a catalyst to multiply knowledge, skills and good practice in climate and sustainable energy finance. We combine technical know-how, applied research, and academic courses to deliver first rate classroom learning. At the same time, we provide a collaborative space to formulate forward-thinking ideas for the post-Paris Agreement implementation phase, where agendas and issues are constantly changing. We build a creative learning environment around some core principles to ensure a more tangible experience for the participants:
We take you on a journey to demystify climate and RE finance, delving into case studies and learning from discussions and group work with a clear hands-on focus tailored to the needs and realities of developing, emerging and industrialized countries.
We foster a strong combination of theory and practice in the classes, ensuring interactions with experts and practitioners. Training relies not only on classroom style teaching but interaction, visualisation, application, facilitation, moderation and ongoing evaluation. A joint excursion completes the programmes and additionally caters to the creative learning environment.
To help you to think outside the box we are going to spend time in the Frankfurt School Innovation Lab to explore design thinking, learning new concepts to tackle different situations in our ever changing world.
The tuition fee for the trainings is EUR 4,300 and it covers all training materials and full-board accommodation in single rooms for the duration of training including meals as well as transportation for site visits.
The Summer Academies are fully tuition based and not sponsored. Accordingly, participants have to cover the full costs of the training or find a sponsor.
