Green Economy e-Learning Course
The UNITAR-facilitated PAGE e-learning course “Introduction to Green Economy: Concepts and Applications” is a state-of the art virtual learning course, which introduces participants to different concepts and facets of the green economy, as well as the global, national and sector-specific challenges and opportunities associated with the green transition. Additionally, participants developed basic skills for applying the green economy concept in practical context. The course is interactive and each participant develops a green economy action plan, which is peer-reviewed by other participants.
To date more than 500 government officials, representatives from academia, the civil society and the private sector from more than 80 countries were successfully trained. Feedback from participants shows that more than 95% of participants are likely to use the information acquired in the course and more than 90% would recommend it to a colleague. In December 2013 the course was awarded the ECB Check Certificate, an internationally recognized standard on quality of e-learning education.
