The Agreement was signed by the University Rector, Professor Doctor Radovan Stanislav Pejovnik, and Professor Doctor Albert Maes on behalf of Professor Doctor Takehiro Togo, President of the ECPD Council.

This September, the newly founded ECPD International Institute for Sustainable Development, Urban Planning and Environmental Studies began operations in Ljubljana. The Institute operates as a subsidiary of the European Centre for Peace and Development (ECPD), which was established in 1986 within the framework of the UN University for Peace. This international institute in Ljubljana is the first ECPD institute in Slovenia. The director of this ECPD institute is Mr. Janez Podobnik.

This document provides the basis for cooperation between both institutions and promises the cooperation of several faculties of the University of Ljubljana with the Centre for Peace and Development, in both research and educational activities. Initially, the cooperation will be predominantly based on the educational and research level, including peace, environment, space, water and food as cultural and social goods.

On this occasion, Professor Doctor Peter Raspor from the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana was appointed a member of the ECPD Academic Council.
