The Academy adopts a holistic learning strategy. The teaching team comprises of local and international experts. Programmes will be offered in collaboration with non-governmental organisations and professional associations.


Sustainable Communities Fellowship Scheme

Course graduates and activity participants of the Academy can join the Sustainable Communities Fellowship Scheme. The scheme offers a platform for committed individuals to join force in the pursuit of community-based sustainability and facilitates experience sharing across different disciplines and sectors. Among other benefits such as involvement in food processing R&D, fellows would enjoy privileges in enrolling in activities of the Academy and participating in Sustainability Hackathons and the Rural in Action Start-up Scheme.
