Disney and Herbal Academy announce a partnership
Disney and herbal academy are teaming up to make a “digital academy” that can teach kids about the world’s plants and animals, the company announced on Wednesday.
The announcement was made in a statement that included a photo of a sign in the background, along with a caption reading “Herbal Academy is proud to announce a collaboration with Disney to bring this vision to life.”
It’s the first major Disney partnership between the two companies, and it comes at a time when Herbal academy has been facing criticism for the treatment of its staff, including a video that showed staff performing painful handstands in the name of medical education.
“This collaboration is a step forward in our evolution as a company,” Herbal head of content and digital academy Mike Fagan said in the statement.
“As a brand, we’re committed to creating innovative and entertaining content for young people, and to doing so, we’ll work with Disney and partners to create an engaging, interactive experience for all ages and experience levels.”
Disney’s new academy, which will be called Herbal Park, will focus on herbal medicine and its connection to wellness.
The school will include an online component that allows parents to track and record their children’s progress.
Disney will be a major sponsor of the school, which is being developed in partnership with the New Zealand-based Herbal Products Association.
The school will also provide a range of other products and services, including herbal supplements, herbal foods, and educational materials.
“Herbal Park will be an interactive, educational environment where parents, caregivers and other learners can discover and interact with a wide range of herbal products,” the company said.
Disney has long focused on creating a “world-class” brand, so the news that it is partnering with Herbal could be seen as a signal that it sees the value of its brand in bringing the world to life through educational content.
“The collaboration with Herbs will create a whole new world of content for families to discover and enjoy through Herbal products and programs, and a new generation of children will get to explore a whole other world of health and wellness through Herbs,” the statement read.
Last year, the Academy also partnered with the Australian government to develop a “sustainable” and “sustainably sourced” food system.
The program, called The ABC, is being rolled out in schools in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and is aiming to teach kids the importance of using the foods they eat.
The news comes at the same time that the world is struggling to grapple with the impact of the pandemic.
The number of people infected with the disease is projected to hit 3.6 million by the end of October.
(ABC News: Kate O’Donoghue)”We’re seeing the pandemics impact across the world, from China to Brazil, from the Middle East to Africa, in countries like the US, Australia and now, Canada,” Fagan said.
“It’s not just the pandemaker.
It’s the disease itself.
We need to take a new approach to the way we deliver information.”
A number of celebrities, including singer Beyonce, actress Lena Dunham and musician Kendrick Lamar, have already been speaking out about the lack of care for people living with the virus.
