Indeed, RULE is deeply committed to instill green skills and sets of competences supportive of the green transition within our students at all levels of their under-graduate and graduate education, and the Green Job Fair is yet another piece of this strategic long-term orientation.
RULE is convinced that competences in high demand in the decades to come will be affiliated to sustainability and green segments of the economy, and that value creation in the green transition will require students to be equipped with particular sets of skills.
In order to prepare our students to meet these new demands, the Dual Degree Department at RULE (https://ddprule.org) has initiated a greening of its curricula and syllabi, integrating environmental perspectives to its programs at all levels. For instance, courses in Environmental Law, Business and Sustainability, Sustainable Project Management, Economics of Sustainable Development, Corporate Social Responsibility and Green Finance are now generalized across various programs in law and economics. Additionally, world class professors specializing on these subjects have been invited at RULE to conduct seminars and partake in capacity building training for academics and students.
This green job fair comes to terminate a four year long project : GREENCAP Project, co-funded by the European Union, which objective was to have a long-lasting impact on the Cambodian high education towards the realization of the SDGs.
This year, the Green Job Fair provided an opportunity for 13 stakeholders of the green economy to showcase their products and services and attempt to recruit our most talented students, either for internships or a first contract. The stakeholders partaking in the job fair were:
