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

Our 'Planning for the Green Industrial Revolution' workshop was held at Salford University on Friday the 17th of May. MP for Salford & Eccles Rebecca Long-Bailey was in attendance as the key-note listener, along with Cllr Derek Antrobus on behalf of Salford City Council. The event looked to bring people together from all sides of the discussion, focusing on how we can quickly move to a zero carbon economy, and what benefits this will bring to everyone in society.

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.
