Dear @Silvia Soccol,

Please, enter module four sections marked in the image attached and at the bottom should be a button that says “marked as completed”. I cannot show it because I have already done it and does not show. I believe that the pending one is the first section. Please, review and let me know if you have found it.

Hi Olalla

Very grateful for the kinder and very supportive guidance during my study lessons indeed this is an eye opener to some of us who had not received such an opportunity. I thank very you much and look forward for further cooperation in the near future. Now with this knowledge acquired am very armed to go out in world with confidence to explore and exploit the green economy. There is a lot of natural resources that God has given to us to make use of it through innovations. The green economy is the best way to go for the good of our future generation. There is a saying which goes “we have borrowed this planet from our children” I share with you the elevator pitch which I found so interested but one thing I have learn rehearse, rehearse, rehearse nothing sounds worse than a badly prepared elevator pitch so. Thank you very much for your cooperation once more.

OLALLA GARCIA PEREZ

Dear @Watuwa Paul Fredrick,

Thank you so much for your kind words and I am very happy to see that you have enjoyed so much the course content and that it has inspired you to improve your green business idea!

I really appreciate that you have shared your elevator pitch with us and I would like to give you my congratulations, first for being to brave to share your elevator pitch with us and second for the great job that you have done! I believe that you have summarized really well your idea, providing the key elements, explaining very well the problem and the solution that you are offering your customers!

I hope that the elevator pitch will be very useful for you in order to try to convince others to follow your project by investing on it or by being part of the company team.

I would like to thank you so much for your participation and interaction in the course and my congratulations for the successful finalization of the course!

Paul

Hello Viktoriia, Thank you all for the great work!
I have a little technical problem, though. I successfully downloaded my certificate but realised only my first name (Paul) shows on the certificate. My surname (Ofei-Manu) was not included. It is possible to help me rectify this situation? It would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Andreea Alexandra Mitrofan

Hello @Paul,

In order to change your name on the certificate, please edit your name on the Profile -> Edit page. After changing your name, refresh the course room and click the “Download your certificate” button once again. The new certificate should have the correct name, as you have edited.

Diana

Hello and thank you for this great course. I have a technical question: I already downloaded my certificate but with this, I discovered that I haven’t write
my full name in my account, so my certificate only shows my first name. It was clearly a personal mistake, but I wonder if it is possible to rectify the certificate with my full name?

thanks in advance!

Julie Kapuvari

Dear @Diana

Yes you may add your last name by editing your LfN profile. Click your photo in the top right hand corner and edit your profile, then re-download your certificate. Please let me know if it works for you!

Diana

It worked! thank you!!
