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

 
UK's 2050 Zero Carbon Target
 
The UK has made a move to lead the industrialised world on ending its carbon emissions - pledging a legally binding target of "net zero" by 2050. This, following the climate emergency declaration earlier this year, and, combined with an announcement of a citizen's assembly on climate solutions to be held towards the end of 2019, looks like we're finally taking multiple steps in the right direction. But is it too little too late?

Taking Carbon Literacy a Step Further

So, you’ve just been certified as Carbon Literate? Well done on completing your training! By now you'll be able to see the scale of the problem we're facing, and will be fired up and ready to do something about it. The challenges are far-reaching and wide-ranging, which can make it daunting and sometimes unclear to know what actions you can take to make a positive difference, and make the most impact.

Find out here how to use your Carbon Literacy training to do just that.

Carbon Literacy for Registered Providers


On Wednesday the 17th of July, we will be holding our next Carbon Literacy for Registered Providers meeting at Innospace. This will be a chance to discuss how the low carbon world has changed locally, nationally and globally; as well as what a Registered Provider might look like in a climate emergency.

If you work in this sector and are interested in attending, please use this Eventbrite link to book your free place.


 
 

 


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.
