This year marks the course's 20th anniversary and will take place from 27 May to 6 June 2024 in Helsinki, Finland. For more information about the upcoming course we encourage you to read the First Announcement (attached) and check out our website (link below).

The University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) are jointly organising a cutting-edge course on international environmental law-making and diplomacy. The course is organised in collaboration with the Government of Finland. The course seeks to transfer experience in the field of international environmental law to current and future negotiators of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs). It also provides a forum to foster North-South co-operation and to take stock of recent developments in MEAs as well as diplomatic practices in the international environmental arena.

The course is intended for experienced government officials engaged in international environmental negotiations. Government officials are therefore invited to apply for consideration before the deadline. In addition, applications from other stakeholders, such as representatives from academia, non-governmental organizations and the private sector will also be considered. We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity. Therefore, approximately 30 participants will be selected, ensuring an equal representation from the North and South, and maintaining a gender-balanced cohort. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be conferred with a Diploma.

The Draft Programme will be published on the Course website in due course. The application deadline is Friday, 23 February 2024.
