Accredited Climate and Carbon Literacy Training (7 Hours)
This is our most comprehensive course, which we typically run online over two half days, or in-person over one full day.
Whether your organisation is only just getting started on your climate action plan or if your plan to be net zero has been in motion for years, our engaging accredited course will help to motivate your team and group members to truly transform your approach to climate change.
Tailored for your needs
We can adapt our standard course materials to focus specifically on your sector, your organisation or community – the impact it has on the climate and how to make a positive change
We have extensive experience in tailoring our courses for specific sectors such as local authorities, parish councils, the hospitality industry and the education sector.
What you’ll learn
Our experienced trainers will take your team through the science of climate change, causes, impacts and solutions. The course will also cover the global, UK and Cumbrian pictures, as well as the actions being taken locally to reduce carbon emissions.
It presents delegates with a clear framework for understanding the climate crisis, how soon we need to act, the scale of that action, and your organisation’s part in that bigger picture.
After attending our accredited Climate and Carbon Literacy course, your delegates will walk away with a greater knowledge of current policy and practice, the ability to articulate complex climate science and what we can do, and a basic understanding of carbon budgeting.
It is an informative training course that will give your organisation the practical skills to make a real difference in Cumbria.
Delegates will leave this interactive course with the ability to develop action plans for your organisation. Once certified as Carbon Literate, they will be able to develop their own training sessions to share what they have learned.
At the end of this course, delegates will be asked to pledge significant emission reduction action. The pledges will be assessed by the Carbon Literacy Project before you’re awarded the Carbon Literacy Award.
After training, your organisation will be able to apply for Carbon Literate Organisation status via the Carbon Literacy Trust. Through building learning across your workforce, your business or group can progress through the Trust’s levels from bronze to platinum.
