Following community vetting on badge design and the reward system, we will start awarding sustainability badges before March 31st 2021. You will be retroactively awarded badges if you already completed or complete qualifying courses before March 31st. Have ideas and interested in helping us create the badges and reward systems? We would love that. Please visit the forum page and engage in a discussion related to badges and points.
Currently we are considering 2 badge types:
- Community badges: Earn badges for your continued contributions and roles within the sustainability community.
- Learning badges: Earn badges for your continued advances in learning and mastering sustainability topics.
