What is Carbon Literacy?

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.”

Description of one day certified course

Do you want to have a better understand of what is causing climate change and what you can do about it?

This one-day, certified course covers the basics of climate change science, how we know it’s happening now, how climate change will affect us in the future, what is already being done and what we can each do to take action.

It is aimed both at individuals and representatives of local organisations who want to be able to talk more confidently about climate issues with others. Some of you might even decide that you want to go on to learn how to run Carbon Literacy training for your friends and colleagues.

There are no dates planned at the moment.

Cost and certification: Our earlier course cost £20 – this covers materials, admin and refreshments plus the £10 cost for your certificate, which is levied by the Carbon Literacy Project. Their backing ensures the course meets national standards; over 9000 people have been trained to date. Participants are eligible for the certificate if they take part fully in the day, and pledge to reduce their carbon footprint.
