The Carbon Literacy Project: Climate Change learning for everyone.

Welcome! The latest news from The Carbon Literacy Project...

 "Climate change does not respect borders; it does not respect who you are - rich and poor, small and big. Therefore, it is what we call 'global challenges,' which require global solidarity."
~ Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations

 Free CL Tools for Universities & Colleges

With the launch of the University and College Carbon Literacy Toolkit, every UK university and its professional services staff, academic staff, and students, have access to free Carbon Literacy courses. These deliver a days'-worth of relevant action-based training, that empowers learners to play their full part in the transition to a low carbon society. The courses are in a ready-to-go, easily accessible format for in-house delivery and enable universities and colleges to create dynamic, interactive training, both face-to-face and distance-delivered.

The Carbon Literacy Project is a unique project, working with everyone who lives, works or studies, to offer a day's worth of training to the Carbon Literacy Standard.
