Lecturers at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) University of London conducted an online lecture for students of higher educational institutions of Turkmenistan.
A Climate Change class at the International University for the Humanities and Development was conducted by Professor Scott Newton, Chairman of the SOAS Center of Contemporary Central Asia and Caucasus, Dr. Philip Kallet, Head of the SOAS School of Law, and Professor Martin Lau. They emphasized in their lectures the importance of addressing the climate change problem, both globally and nationally, as well as the significance of the 26th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP-26) to be held in Glasgow (UK) in 2021.
Speaking about the ratification by Turkmenistan of the Paris Agreement and its active participation in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the lecturers highlighted the country’s permanent neutrality role in implementing international commitments in this area.
The lecture ended with a question and answer session.
Video lectures with professors from foreign universities have become a tradition for Turkmen students, which allow future specialists to improve both their professional and language skills. In the age of digitalization, it is impossible to imagine the educational process without applying the latest advances in the field of information and communication technologies.
