Apply now for the ICAP Online ETS Academy from 16 August – 10 September 2021!

From 16 August to 10 September 2021, the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) will convene the first ICAP Online ETS Academy. The Academy consists of four modules (ETS basics, ETS implementation, policy & politics of emissions trading, global & regional action on emissions trading) of one week each. These modules are designed as self-contained learning units, focusing on different aspects of ETS design and implementation, and progressing from basic to intermediate to advanced. Applicants can apply for one, two or three modules.

Each module of the ETS online Academy is intended for up to 40 carefully selected policy makers and other stakeholders from the nongovernmental, academic and private sectors. They will convey in-depth understanding of emissions trading as an instrument to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build capacity for the technical design and implementation of carbon trading systems. Moreover, the modules are designed to give participants ample opportunities to interact with each other and with the teaching faculty. In addition, several tools will be deployed to make the event interactive, lively and engaging.

Application deadline is Monday, 19 July 2021 at 8 am CET. By 26 July, applicants will receive confirmation whether they have been selected, and which modules they are invited to participate in.

The ICAP online ETS Academy is implemented by the Ecologic Institute on behalf of ICAP, the International Carbon Action Partnership. It is made possible through the generous support of the European Commission.
