The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has gained prominence in our company. But what are we actually doing about it? Hindered by sanitary and economic constraints and racing against the clock each day – like all start-ups – this is the question we’ve been asking ourselves.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Nelson Mandela
Teach on Earth leads an ecosystem of companies and private individuals all dedicated to this mission of raising awareness about the challenges associated with sustainable development goals, so that everyone can do their bit for the planet. It works in partnership with NGOs and associations to create and deliver training courses all year round. For example, this week we published a course on protecting minors online with the association e-Enfance.
Discover the course, “When in doubt, call the “Net Écoute” helpline: 0800 200 000” available free of charge on the Teach on Earth app
Teach on Earth relies on sponsorship to implement its vision. I urge any company which would like to get involved with the initiative to support the association (firstname.lastname@example.org) and any individual who share its values, to join.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world”. Gandhi
We have of course set up a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) committee. It meets each month to consider how we can contribute – digital pollution, mobility, internal awareness-raising, support for Teach on Earth, environmental clean-ups, waste (and mask) management, etc. There is no shortage of subjects and its discussions are free-flowing.
Our actions are small-scale, but we were delighted to be recently honored by a jury presided over by former French Environment Minister, Corinne Lepage for our initial efforts.

Yet, our real challenge still lies before us: to persuade you – yes, you the client – to integrate educational activities about sustainable development goals (SDGs) into your mainstream professional programs. You and us as companies share a historic responsibility and we must do everything we can to move in the right direction.
What use is learning and becoming “smarter” if it’s to destroy our planet a little more each day?
This is the major issue we invite you to address together – making education about SDGs an integral part of training policies. Considering our partners as citizens of the planet. Becoming activist companies each in our own way.
