I have taken climate courses at Harvard and Yale and through ESG Certifications. Out of all those experiences, this course was the best combination of science-backed learning, group work, and tools for action. It was a truly amazing experience that spurred me to start my own company and be more vocal about climate action at my full-time corporate job.
