GOWI is about empowering change makers…
one day at a time
WHAT IS GOWI?
GOWI is an online learning platform that takes complex sustainability topics and breaks them down into bite sized portions for time strapped executives, students and consumers. GOWI aims to educate, engage and inspire us to be sustainability change makers in our jobs, our lives and in our communities, one day at a time.
A course, also called a gowi, takes only 5-10 minutes to complete. All you need to do is register by selecting the login button at the top of the screen and you are ready to go.
Courses are available in various formats and languages. They are developed with a range of international organisations, leading sustainable businesses and universities. New courses will be released here on a regular basis. To stay up to date sign up for the newsletter.
To make sustainability a reality, in business we all need to be change makers in some way. Regardless of what we do or how much time we have, we can all be part of positive change. However sustainability is a complex topic, and we often don’t have time to dive into it enough to know what we can do and how.
After many years working in the field of sustainability, founder Giselle Weybrecht was tired of hearing all the reasons we couldn’t move forward on issues that are important to us all. GOWI came about as a way to provide a helpful push and give everyone a chance to be a change maker. GOWI stands for “Get On With It”. The logo illustrates our spheres of influence (personal, professional, community), spheres where we have an impact daily and which GOWI courses explore.
GOWI can also be created specifically for your individual organisations to educate your team or students. Gowis can also be delivered live at events.
TRANSLATIONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS
We are looking for individuals to translate the courses into various languages as well as young illustrators to create works to accompany new courses.
