”...there has never been a better time to offer education to those who wish to learn more about how they can contribute to implementing sustainable practices."
Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 16, 2010
An education-based website with a growing portfolio of “green” courses downloadable through a robust learning management system, the World Green Institute (WGI) was developed with the intent of becoming the internet’s primary source of online curriculum for commercial and residential energy conservation, building practices and sustainable lifestyles.
”With the recent barrage of global events that have dramatically heightened environmental awareness around the world, there has never been a better time to offer education to those who wish to learn more about how they can contribute to implementing sustainable practices,” says Randy Brodsky, WGI’s CEO and one of three North American-based partners. “Whether that education is designed to further one’s professional credentials or to simply outline the steps we all can take to embark on a greener lifestyle, this is a service that the entire team at WGI is passionate about providing.”
In developing its curriculum, WGI partners with a diverse team of content and topic experts from around the world. Through online courses with a consistent user interface, these experts provide insight and instruction across a wide variety of disciplines that WGI ultimately classifies into distinct “libraries”, such as the Library of Green Lifestyles, Library of Energy Alternatives, Library of Water Conservation, etc. As the WGI portfolio continues to grow, WGI intends to offer its courses through Continuing Education and Certification programs across North America.
NOTE: Coinciding with the launch, WGI is offering a 50% discount on the first three courses made available on its website; “Simple Ways to Green Your Home”, “Simple Ways to Green Your Transportation” and “Simple Ways to Green Your Yard”. A visitor to the website must simply register through the WGI Virtual Campus to capitalize on this limited time offer.
