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

 WWF's Emission Possible



Following on from their success with a personal carbon footprint calculator (which allows users to calculate estimates of their yearly personal carbon footprints) the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have produced a simple guide to support companies through emission reporting. If you are interested in understanding your organisation's emissions better, this could be a really useful tool. Equally, as a CL trainer, have a look at this is a brilliant training resource.

Take a look at the Emission Possible guide here
 

We're very lucky to have a fantastic team of volunteers working with us at The Project. They help us to continue to grow and certify more learners every day, and in return, they get relevant workplace skills and experience, both within the sustainability sector, and more generally. We now have the opportunity to recruit a small number of new volunteers. We need a wide range of skills and experience for different tasks and from different people, and these include: administrative support, IT database and web skills, desktop publishing, graphics, and more. Interested?

 Spotlight On

Anthesis Group – a leading global sustainability consultancy, and certified B Corp, have taken a unique approach to their Carbon Literacy training, involving other members of a private equity house, to further cascade climate action. As a Palatine portfolio business, they have been using their network to increase awareness, and offer CL training to other organisations, in order to help them begin their low-carbon journey.

Brad Blundell, UK Managing Director of Anthesis explains more about the training here.
 

CL Public Sector Newsletters Launch



As our range of public sector toolkits expand, it makes sense to have sector specific newsletters. The first to launch are the Local Authorities Newsletter, and the Universities & Colleges Newsletter. Each contains low-carbon and Carbon Literacy information, resources, and advice, specially formulated for the sector.

If you would like to subscribe to either, you can do so here for Local Authorities, and here for Universities & Colleges.

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.
