Monday 4 December sees the world’s largest climate education-and-action training event – Carbon Literacy Action Day – and we are very proud to be playing our part!

Carbon Literacy Action Day (CLAD) is led by the Carbon Literacy Project and coincides with the UN Climate Change Conference; COP 28. And whilst world leaders gather in Dubai, Carbon Literacy learners everywhere will undergo training that educates and inspires them to take meaningful action on climate change. It offers an opportunity for as many learners as possible from organisations, sectors, backgrounds and nations all around the world, to complete their Carbon Literacy training simultaneously on a single day, and as a result, pledge positive action to reduce carbon emissions and become officially certified as Carbon Literate

Here at CAfS our course on the day is getting back to face-to-face courses that are open to everyone. Holding an event in Penrith that will generate increased levels of activity, involvement and allow like-minded people to come together in a common motivation to pledge positive action.

Hazel Graham, our Carbon Literacy Training Manager explains the excitement,

“It is a real privilege to be part of the Carbon Literacy Project action day, our Climate and Carbon literacy courses have gone from strength to strength since their inception in 2019.  This course will mean we have trained over 1500 individuals from Cumbria and beyond in a variety of climate and carbon literacy courses, empowering people and organisations in the fight for strong action on the climate crisis and giving them the tools needed to make reductions in their carbon footprint. This day means that we will part of action that will include thousands of people from all walks of life and from all over the planet. And we can’t wait!”

Our event is at the Eden Rural Foyer building in Penrith, and will include a delicious low-carbon lunch. Attendees on the day will receive, along with their carbon literacy accreditation, a special Carbon Literacy Action Day certificate.
