Sustainability Tutorial

Welcome to the UN’s first Sustainability Tutorial.

The tutorial is designed for UN staff, highlighting the work that's underway across the UN System to improve its environmental performance and providing helpful advice on how each individual can contribute to that effort, by calculating and reducing their own footprint.

The tutorial takes the form of an animation in which we follow two UN staffers – Stick and Bean – as they overcome the challenge of being green in an typical UN office. Just follow the link below to the UN System Staff College website, where the tutorial is hosted, and follow the instructions.

Hello! Do you have a small design with text to put under our signature blocks in e-mails? :) Thanks!

We sure do, I've added a template email signature and image under the 'emails' section above. Thanks for helping to spread the word.

Great work guys, love the interactive training!

Great!
Is it available in French? Spanish?...
Thanks.

Making it available in other UN languages is something we're hoping to do in the future.

Commendable initiative!

Wonderful initiative!
