Carbon Literacy: “An awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.” (CLP, Manchester)
Declarations of Climate Emergency need be followed up with real change. For this to happen, individuals and organisations must be informed and motivated; people need to be ‘Carbon Literate’.
Training includes

  • Some of the science behind the slogans (what IS a greenhouse gas, and how many are there???)
  • Understanding jargon, metrics & targets (when is it tonnes, or temperature?)
  • Frameworks for prioritising, assessing, and communicating action to minimise global heating

Zoom sessions: trainer and learners work together ‘in synch’. Plenty of interactive group activities & discussion, using online Padlets to share ideas and active learning.
Sway resources: group work on Zoom alternates with independent ‘non-synch’ work online.
Context, data sources, videos and links.

“Really enjoyed the interative nature of all the sessions. Thanks again for the awesome training.”
“Carbon Literacy Training has had such a positive impact on conversations I’m having with everyone”
“Hopeful and practical – which is what we need to be.”

The course is accredited by CLP in Manchester; home to the industrial revolution, and now to Carbon Literacy itself. Successful learners are certified ‘Carbon Literate’ (an internationally recognised qualification, recognised at COP21 in Paris).

The training takes 8-9 hours; courses either span 2 dates, or take place over one full day.
