Earlier in 2015 we announced several new ways to work with us – and we’re excited to expoud upon these opportunities as we head into Summer and Fall. Many of you have been contacting us with ideas for customized courses for your organization, workplace, campus or classroom. And the answer is yes! We are indeed able to customize NWEI courses drawing on our existing curriculum.
How does customization work? For example, you love NWEI course books and discussion course process, but need something to span 2-3 sessions covering core systems thinking and sustainable living concepts (or any topics of your choosing). You can now pick and choose which NWEI course book sessions you’d like to use and we’ll pull together a custom course for your class or employee engagement initiative. We’re also able to create longer discussion courses spanning broader topic areas. For example, Santa Clara University’s Contemplative Leadership and Sustainability Program is using an 11-session course developed by the NW Earth Institute.
How should you get started? You can fill out this form to let us know you are interested and we’ll give you a call. Decide which NWEI books you might like to review and we’ll help you consider different sessions and course books depending on what sustainability topics you would like to address. We’ll pull together an ebook for you and can even add your logo and any specific discussion questions particular to your organization or initiative.
*Looking for other new ways to engage with us? We’ll be launching our newest discussion course on climate change next week: Change Is Our Choice: Creating Climate Solutions. We are also hosting our first-ever three-session online discussion course beginning on Wednesday, June 3rd. For more information and to register, click here.
