We welcome your participation and appreciate your feedback in topic discussions. However, we expect our scholars, alumni and other fellow members to write their comments in line with good practices and policies of polite and mutually respectful debate.

Here is a list of Educate the Planet social media guidelines:

1 – We do not welcome and do not publish comments that:

    1. – Cause offence or abuse others.  
    2. – Provide inappropriate content that would not be acceptable in real-life discussions, such as:
