Abbotsford, Canada -- Cherie Enns
Eminus Academy is proud to announce that our successful three year of pilot, we will be transitioning to offer an exciting interactive on-line professional program aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Each course is just $150. The program will also continue to offer subsidized courses to youth(18-35 year-olds) requiring subsidy and/or referral to us by UN Habitat. The academy started out as a means for urban youth to gain valuable skills such proposal and business plan writing, program evaluation, digital story telling and mapping. We are also expanding our applied theory courses beyond social enterprise and seed market to include a larger range of courses, all connected to Sustainable Development Goals or the UN Habitat III agenda. Please see our About page for more details related to obtaining a Certificate of Completion in Sustainable Development Management co-signed by University of Fraser Valley and UN Habitat.
We are announcing a pivotal expansion plan which will make Eminus Academy available to people in 78 different countries around the globe. From South Africa to Spain, we will offer courses which will be relevant to both students in the developing world and the developed world, creating stronger partnerships between nations. Each course will provide direct interaction with program professors and facilitators as well as allow you to engage with your program cohort.
We are also announcing a new way to focus our efforts, the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs). The SDGs are a list of 17 goals for humanity to strive to achieve by the year 2030, including the elimination of poverty and hunger as well as reducing inequality and promote peace throughout the world. Our efforts will now impact 6 of the SDGs directly while indirectly impacting all of the 17 goals.
This expansion is something that the world has earned, especially with all the negativity in the world right now, notably the rise of terrorism. Our efforts will be financed by a new pricing structure which will be based on the number of courses taken and the eligibility of applicants for automatic scholarships, which will be awarded to those who are considered by Eminus to be requiring a little help.
At the same time, while we are working with you to create a more sustainable world we also plan to work with you to help source funding for your transformative applied projects. Courses are to be launched in March 2017. All proceeds of the the program are invested in your further learning and development.
Please also stay tuned for Eminus products, which will be available on the Eminus Store. All products sold will be fair-trade and 100% of the profits will be going towards the expansion of learning opportunities at Eminus Academy.
With this bold new expansion, we hope to change how young people learn collaboratively around the world. We invite you to be a part of it!
