Save the world

Make your mark on our planet

Pandemics, earthquakes, flood, wild fires, famine and conflict — these natural and unnatural disasters are happening everyday all over the world, and it feels like we’re experiencing more of them than ever before.

Every one of us has the power to make a difference and learning how to respond to these events is a vital way of shaping how disasters and global challenges impact communities all over the world.

If you’d like to work as an activist or you just want to learn more about how to be an Earth-loving citizen, our online courses will teach you the history of humanitarianism and the key principles and values that underpin the concept today.

You can also explore solutions to global issues like climate change and wildlife conservation, and consider the role of changemakers who take action to make change happen.

Whatever your reasons for caring about the people, plants and wildlife of our planet, online environmental courses will broaden your understanding of vital sustainable practices and the actions you can take to save the world, one step at a time.
