GEF Institute also offers certifications to encourage and motivate individuals to take steps toward sustainability literacy and action. In this critical field of study, all levels of expertise must be acknowledged as an achievement, and then built upon. While working toward any level of certification, participants become engaged with important topics in sustainability through real world examples, interactive activities, and dynamic instruction. The goal of the certifications is to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary for success in the higher education or the workplace.
