Hence, it commits to enhance the integration of SD & SR to the teaching and learning in all programs.
Implementation methodologiesIn 2011, MIT-Philippines established the Sustainable Development Research Office (SDRO) that focuses on sustainable development research and research related activities. Among the research related activities are the conduct of fora, seminar, conference, networking, and workshop. In mid 2012, SDRO will conduct an environmental and occupational toxicology workshop, to be participated in by government agencies, industries, academia and non-government organizations. This is to be conducted with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency through Swedish Chemicals Agency, Sweden that aims to achieve a non-toxic environment.
