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

 
Double-Digit Dedication!
 
 
During April, The Carbon Literacy Project reached a target we've had in our sights for a while now... 10,000 certified learners! This means that over 20,000 actions have been pledged by individuals, organisations and communities in the effort to reduce carbon emissions. 7 years of hard work from countless parties has led up to this point, and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate it!

Launching into Leeds

Earlier this month, Leeds Climate Commission* and Opera North hosted a Carbon Literacy in Leeds event. It was a great opportunity to bring together like-minded organisations, excited to be at the forefront of developing Carbon Literacy across the city.

UK Declares 'Climate Emergency'

 
UK Parliament has motioned to declare an environment and climate change emergency in what will hopefully be the first steps towards major Government action. In itself, this is a big moment in the battle for recognition among officials of the problem we are facing, not only in the UK but globally.

Climate Change - The Facts

In many ways, April has felt like a month of awakening in terms of the public awareness of climate change and its expected impacts. This is largely thanks to a combination of well-timed efforts to bring attention to the climate crisis at hand, including Extinction Rebellion action in London, the global Youth Climate Strikes lead by Greta Thunberg, and David Attenborough's most recent documentary highlighting the extreme dangers of runaway climate change.

We dedicated a blog to this impactful documentary, discussing the importance of climate conversation, including information straight from the Tyndall Centre about actions you can take now.


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.
