Cultural Diversity Day Goal 3:
Integrate culture in sustainable development frameworks
Exactly what is sustainable development? It’s a method of providing for the needs of industrialization and population growth in an environmentally friendly manner. In other words, sustainable development calls for balancing sustainability on three pillars: environmental protection, social development, and economic growth.
Sustainable development is a worldwide challenge, and every business can do its part by minding its environmental footprint. Even a simple gesture like avoiding printing out reports on paper when it’s not necessary can make a big difference in the long run.
The United Nations has recognized culturally sensitive approaches as an effective tool for providing sustainable development solutions. In the global South in particular, the cultural dimension is increasingly common in economic development plans.
What does that have to do with your office? Plenty, as far as setting a good example and engendering cultural sensitivity are concerned. Well-paid jobs for traditionally disadvantaged groups are an essential ingredient of sustainable development, so providing skills training in an environmentally friendly manner is a great way to do your part.
E-learning is a green option in any office environment, and our solutions ensure you can update your training materials at any time without wasting a single sheet of paper. No matter how much you need to adjust your training approach for linguistic abilities or different learning styles – or for cultural sensitivity concerns – you can do it efficiently, quickly, and paperlessly.
When it comes to sustainable development, everyone can make a difference. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help your team do their part.
