No prior knowledge is assumed, and whilst it is meant to be informative and interesting, it is not an academic course. It is also free, and course participants can work through the material at their own pace.
The course is designed for busy people who would like a basic understanding of how organizations such as ERI can work within the UN system to bring about improved outcomes for the most vulnerable people on our planet and for our earth itself.
The course is divided into eight topics containing material for reading and reflection, some questions for discussion and an opportunity for chat with like-minded people around the world – (an optional feature), some suggestions and guidelines for engaging in a simple exercise in advocacy of your own choosing and some quizzes to test your own understanding – (there are no marks or grades associated with the course)
Those interested are encouraged to sign up and either work through the course individually (each topic takes about two hours to work through) or to form a group and work through it together.
