Online courses available: become an environmental steward
In mid-February, we launched the first course, Strategic Communication for Sustainability Leaders, in the Environmental Management for Sustainability professional certificate program on edX. On April 26, we are excited to launch the second course in the certificate, Storytelling with Data Using Socio-environmental Report Cards. Join the more than 900 learners that are currently enrolled in these two courses, and consider becoming a verified learner to gain access to additional content and to earn a professional certificate.
