Two Peterborough people have been awarded bursaries to help develop and grow the city.
Clare Foster and Robin Eagle have been funded to study a Master’s degree in sustainability.
As part of the Peterborough DNA programme that is shaping a smarter more sustainable city, the bursary will help ensure the city has the right skills to make the most of emerging green markets.
The MSc in sustainability has been developed in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, the Eden Project and Change Agents UK.
The course will enable students to use their skills to feed back into the DNA programme and contribute towards building a more sustainable city.
Steve Bowyer , programme director and acting chief executive of Opportunity Peterborough, said: “Developing these kinds of local skills is vital to building a city that can meet the challenges and opportunities of the future.
He added: “We have worked closely with University Centre Peterborough to include a number of social networks and events at UCP.”
