In order to acknowledge its ongoing commitment to the development of WAT_UNESCO since 2003, Université de Montréal has awarded the Teaching Excellence Award 2016 for program internationalization to Philippe Poullaouec-Gonidec, chairholder of UNESCO Chair in Landscape and Environmental Design (CUPEUM) and professor at the École d'urbanisme et d'architecture de paysage. This award is shared with CUPEUM’s international scientific cooperation network as well as with the multiple governmental and municipal partners that make it possible to carry WAT_UNESCO on an annual basis.
“I would like to especially thank all of my fellow professors, actors of each WAT_UNESCO worldwide and the members of CUPEUM’s support team who coordinate this international activity since its creation including my colleague Patrick Marmen”, said Philippe Poullaouec-Gonidec.
Beyond the involvement of CUPEUM’s international partners, WAT_UNESCO are made possible through the collaboration of UNESCO, the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, the ministère des Relations Internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec and the Directorate for international Affairs of the Université de Montréal.
To celebrate this honor, CUPEUM also launches a new brochure titled WAT_UNESCO a lever collaborative urban design and describing WAT_UNESCO implementation process including the results of the last edition held during spring 2015 in Sao Paulo.
