Who created the online course?

The online course was created in cooperation between Educasoft Solutions and GreenScan. Educasoft developed the online course including its graphic and content form. GreenScan participated as an expert on the given issue and created materials for the course chapters.

Our primary focus areas are designing and developing e-learning courses and providing and developing our LMS system Competent. We’ve successfully delivered over 50 online educational projects, including an awarded course about climate change for People in Need (one of Czechia’s biggest NGOs). It helped nearly two thousand teachers understand climate change and prepared them to teach about it.

We are enthusiasts, volunteers and, above all, humans. We want to understand society and nature. Our surroundings are not indifferent to us. We move forward, create new things, and wish to be helpful. Our core value is freedom of choice and the right to information for everyone. We are all about products being safe for people to use, health and ecological sustainability of life on our planet. A change in the direction of our society is possible.
