Are you worried about climate change and want to find out ways you can act on it? Would you like to train others on sustainable behaviour change in your own organisation or elsewhere?

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we are currently facing and it will affect all aspects of society. In recognition of this, major cities in the UK have pledged to become carbon neutral by 2038.

The United Nations has recognised the Carbon Literacy Project as one of 100 worldwide Transformative Action Programs.

Carbon Literacy is defined as “an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions on an individual, community and organisational basis”.

Carbon Literacy highlights the need for substantial change and supports you, as an individual, to have a cascade effect on a much wider audience – whether it’s in your workplace, community, school, university, place of worship, or another setting.

By completing the training you will gain an understanding of:

The basic science behind climate change

Social equity & climate change

What you can do to act on climate change

Strategies and skills for communicating action on climate change

The Carbon Literacy training consists of two parts. Both parts must be completed to receive your Carbon Literate certification:

1) Carbon Literacy Part 1: Film screening (1.5 hours, to be completed in your own time)

2) Carbon Literacy Part 2: Workshop (4 hours)
