Explore climate solutions, create an action plan for you and your community, and gain Carbon Literate certification on our online course.
Specifically developed for those working in communities, this online course will cover the science of climate change, local and global impacts and how these will affect their work. Drawing on their Zero Carbon Britain research, CAT will look at low carbon objectives in the communities and create an action plan to influence others. Your output from this course will be evaluated by the Carbon Literacy Project in order for you to be certified as Carbon Literate.
What is Carbon Literacy?
The Carbon Literacy Project describes it as ‘An awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.’
What you will learn
CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain project offers the hard data and confidence required for visualising a future where we have risen to the demands of climate science. It helps to reduce fear and misunderstandings and open new, positive, solutions-focused conversations.
This Carbon Literacy Project accredited online course will explore the solutions offered by the Zero Carbon Britain end point vision. Drawing on case studies and real life examples, together we’ll look at practical steps to reach net zero from a community perspective.
During the course you’ll commit to two carbon reducing actions; one as an individual and one which will influence a group of individuals. CAT encourages these to be work-based actions in order to support low carbon culture change within councils. These actions will be evaluated by the Carbon Literacy Project in order for you to be certified as Carbon Literate, enabling you to go on to train others in your sector or area of work.
This online training is suitable for all who work in communities – as individuals or as part of groups, organisations, networks etc. Across the day there will be timetabled discussion and reflection sessions, Q&As, networking and offline breaks to keep the online format refreshing and engaging.
This training can be offered as a bespoke course on a date to suit you. E-mail to arrange: [email protected]
