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

 

 

 Carbon Literacy Pioneers Network

Our next Carbon Literacy 'Pioneers Network' event will take place via Zoom at 2.00 pm, on Thursday 11th of February. Traditionally, the Pioneers Network is an informal space for facilitators, trainers and consultants, (formally certified or not), delivering CL training to any audience, to come together to meet. The network gets the latest information on the Carbon Literacy movement directly from The Project, together with access to additional resources, trainer tricks & tips, and the chance to meet and discuss what they do with other trainers.

 University of Edinburgh: What is CL?

MSc in Environmental Sustainability alumna, Naoise Luke, tells us how she found the University of Edinburgh’s new learning and development opportunity: Carbon Literacy. She goes on to describe, in her own words, the importance of the training, explaining that it is "a skill which is only increasing in relevance in the context of the current climate crisis".

A UNIQUE PROJECT

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.
