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


On Tackling Inequality

Within our organisation, we have been discussing how, in our field of sustainability and climate change solutions, we can do something more concrete to address the lack of Black voices and the lack of representation in our field.

Please read our full update to find out how we are beginning to address this within The Carbon Literacy Project.

Climate Reframe

Here at the CLP, we recently came across this brilliant resource - Climate Reframe. The Climate Reframe project aims to highlight some of the best Black, Brown, Asian, People of Colour and UK based Indigenous Peoples who are climate experts, campaigners and advocates living and working in the UK.

Greater Manchester Green Recovery

Recently our Helen Filby attended a virtual Five Year Environment Plan Forum meeting, held in connection with the Greater Manchester Green City Partnership. The meeting looked at the direct connections between the urgent need to recover from the COVID-19 emergency, and the need to remould our economy and society into one dealing with the even bigger and deeper Climate Emergency. Green Recovery? Or Green Reset?

Read more about how this conversation progressed, incorporating Greater Manchester’s zero-carbon targets into ideas of how to ‘build back better’.

Carbon Literacy Distance Delivered

A range of Open Carbon Literacy courses - all distance delivered - are being offered by external training organisations and freelance trainers, addressing the challenges of geographic location and the Covid-19 pandemic at the same time. They are open to all, and offer full Carbon Literacy certification.

Check the course list here, and/or bookmark it, as opportunities are updated on a daily basis.



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. Once Carbon Literate, we have an instinctive understanding of the carbon impacts of our activities, are able to make informed choices, and, driven by the urgency, act positively to address climate change.

We've recently updated our pricing matrix to reflect some changes in our costs.

If you need to review it, you can find it here on our Documents page. Other key resources that can be found there range from our Brand Guidelines to our Download Packs. Please email for more information if necessary.
It launched on Kickstarter in September, with all proceeds going to charity. You can read more about the game and its design process here.
