A revolutionary Training Course in the picturesque city of Karlovac, Croatia, took place between August 31st and September 7th. The training, entitled "PRiSM – Projects integrating Sustainable Methods" was organized by Carpe Diem and attracted participants from eleven different countries, solidifying itself as a global platform for sharing knowledge and environmentally responsible practices.

During the intensive one-week course, participants had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of green project management practices, addressing critical issues related to the environment and efficient resource management. The event was a true mix of cultures and perspectives, with participants from eleven different nationalities, including Croatia, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Romania. This diversity further enriched the discussions and allowed participants to share experiences from their own countries, promoting a deeper global understanding of sustainable project management.

The training organizers highlighted the importance of promoting sustainable project management practices, emphasizing the collective responsibility of everyone involved in making a difference in protecting the environment. During the training, participants learned how to integrate sustainability strategies into all phases of a project, reducing environmental impact and creating added value for stakeholders. One of the most relevant aspects of the training was the opportunity to apply the concepts covered in real projects, providing participants with practical experience. The initiative not only promoted responsible project management, but also created a global network of youngsters committed to a more sustainable future.

This event was an inspiring reminder of how international collaboration can shape the future of project management and the environment, putting sustainability at the heart of our actions.

The Training Course “PRiSM – Projects Integrating Sustainable Methods” was organized by Carpe Diem. This course was funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Program through the Key Action 1 - Learning Mobility of Individuals.
