our Mission

culture & values

We’re here because we want to make a difference and play our part in building the skills that will help us all do a better job of protecting our planet.

How are we going to do that ? We’re starting by creating a full range of courses that help people gain the skills they need to change their own behaviours and actions whilst becoming proactive sustainability champions at work. Our full programme will offer more than 50 courses – some formally certificated, others more like a ‘starter for ten’ on a particular theme of topic.

We practice what we preach. We operate a low carbon office and we employ people from parts of the world particularly impacted by climate change. We share wealth by paying all Blue Marble employees rates of pay correlated to UK universities rather than ‘home countries’ rates.

We’re actively promote inclusivity. We actively promote diversity.

connectivety

and social learning

We’ve consciously designed our learning so that it brings people together people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We encourage people to share ideas and compare experiences. 

When you join a Blue Marble programme you’ll participate in a number of online seminars as well as competing a programme of e-learning in your own time. Seminars groups can be ‘blocked out’ by a single employer who has asked us to train a group of their employees, but more typically seminar group participants come from a variety of businesses or organisations. Individually privately funded or unemployed and financially supported also participate in our groups.

Facilitators also come form a variety of backgrounds. Professors, post graduate students, teachers, policy makers, scientists, emergency services specialists. We drawn on a wide range of expertise. You’ll find people logging in to a Blue Marble session from all four corners of the globe !
