CEMS Students at the CGV Head Office, after their Biomass Presentation, December 2012

CEMS Students at the CGV Head Office, after their Biomass Consultancy Project Presentation, December 2012

Since October 2012, Celestial Green Ventures have been working with an incredible group of students who are currently studying on the CEMS Masters in Management Programme at the Smurfit Graduate School of Business in University College Dublin (UCD).

The Biomass Consultancy Project, which they presented to us in December, was merely the beginning of a mutually beneficial, on-going relationship between ourselves and the CEMS Programme, and especially the CEMS Dublin group, based in UCD.

We are particularly impressed to see young future business leaders learning about the importance of sustainable business practices by carbon balancing their flights to Dublin, for the first half of their International Master’s Degree Programme, which sees them travel to another CEMS partner university, this semester. (Currently there are 27 Partner Universities spread across a number of countries worldwide).

You can read more about this new sustainable partnership on the university website, and you will hear more about this relationship right here on our Blog, throughout 2013 and beyond, with several exciting initiatives being developed.

The Trocano Araretama REDD+ Conservation project, developed by Celestial Green Ventures in partnership with Instituto Amazônia Livre (IAL), is being used as the basis of a scientific article by members of the IAL team.

Renan Albuquerque Rodrigues, a lecturer and PhD researcher at the Universidade Federal do Amazonas (UFAM), the oldest and one of the most traditional universities in Brazil, and Dr. Antônio José do Nascimento Fernandes who both work at IAL have decided to use this first CGV REDD+ Natural Capital project as a test case and as the basis of a scientific academic article in Brazil.

This new link between the organisations, can be beneficial for all sides, while researchers at the university are currently analysing the potential of this particular academic paper, the IAL team are confident that it will be the start of a great relationship now and into the future.

The Trocano Araretama project uses a REDD+ methodology and is based on the principles of good governance (including social participation), transparency and inclusion. Abating deforestation and forest degradation; protecting vulnerable biodiversity; enhancing the livelihoods of the local communities and protecting the Natural Capital of the regions are key to the success these projects.

These REDD+ Natural Capital projects are designed to bring benefits to the local communities, who are also the decision-making partners deciding where and how the funds are spent, to improve their regions, in the way that they want.

He was one of the members of the IAL team who visited Celestial Green Ventures Head Office in Dublin last October.
