What was featured in the BGA's magazine?
Acsenda School of Management's very own President Dr. Neil Mort was featured in the issue, answering an important question on how Acsenda is addressing its own environmental impact.
'For the past two terms, in conjunction with Drawdown BC, we have offered a joint micro-credential in environmental awareness, sustainability, and climate action. This is a 5-session program that seeks to provide meaningful opportunities for students to increase awareness regarding climate change, connect with their communities and develop initiatives that help to bring positive change'.
Acsenda School of Management's new program educates students on how they can help the global environment by reducing CO2 to prevent worsening climate catastrophe. In the program, students have a chance to create their own proposals of ways they can help fight environmental change from a business management context. To read the full feature, click HERE.
What is the program called?
The program offered by Acsenda in conjunction with Drawdown BC, an organization motivated by a vision to reverse global warming by assuring a sustainable and eco-friendly planet, is known as the Climate Action Certificate program.
