Points

Earn Points by viewing courses, leaving reviews, and participating in other community features. Redeem your points for account upgrades and once in a month sweepstakes!

During the soft launch (March 4-March 17 2021), earn 2x points for participating in building the community and helping us fix the minor kinks.   You have the option to provide your feedback on design of badges, reward systems, missing images, broken pages, etc.

In addition to the points, you will be entered a lottery to win a kindle or gift card or an account upgrade.

We will be awarding 3 Kindles and 50 Sustainability Leader/Platinum membership accounts worth more than $10,000.

Badges

As a leader in sustainability education, we are excited to begin issuing badges to encourage sustainability learners to think beyond their diplomas and credentials. 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:

  1. Community badges: Earn badges for your continued contributions and roles within the sustainability community.
  2. Learning badges: Earn badges for your continued advances in learning and mastering sustainability topics.

Display your sustainability badges through LinkedIn and make potential employers see your continued growth in sustainability and green buildings. Inspire your peers, boost your credentials, and build your resume.

When will sweepstake winners be announced?

When offering a monthly sweepstakes, we will also include a countdown letting users know when it ends. The winners will be announced the next business day.

What if I don't want a Kindle?

If you are not interested in our sweepstakes prize, we are happy to offer you an Amazon gift card of equal value. 

What is the difference between Points & Badges?

Points are earned though viewing courses, leaving reviews and participating in other community features. Points can be redeemed for rewards.

Badges are awarded to users based off their continued contributions with the sustainability community as well as through viewing courses. Badges can be added to your resume, displayed with your email signature, or shared on LinkedIn.
