Carbon Literacy At Work

The Carbon Literacy Project aims to ensure that everyone who works, lives, or studies in Wales has the opportunity to learn about;

– the causes and consequences of global warming,

– what is meant by “climate change”

– the ways that individuals, organisations and communities can take action in response.

The Carbon Literacy Project aims to give every one the opportunity to explore what the reality of climate change means for them in their homelife and worklife.  Equipped with the facts on how human activity, weather and climate are inter-related, individuals, communities and organisations are helped to take action to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses.

The “Carbon Literacy Project” has achieved international recognition and is now an established movement for change in greater Manchester, the BBC, BAFTA and Scotland with new networks established in Canada, Holland and France.

 

“An awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions on an individual, community and organisational basis.”

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Wales.

Carbon Literacy is for individuals from any organisation – public sector, businesses, charities, voluntary groups – that has aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, is thinking of doing so, or wants to influence others to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and adopt low carbon lifestyles.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

For Individuals

Individuals will understand the causes and consequences of climate change, locally and across the world. They will be able to evaluate the contributions they make to climate change and the power they have to take positive action to reduce their contribution and adapt to climate changes.

For Teams

Teams will develop a shared understanding of how business activity relates to climate change and be able to design responses that are relevant and appropriate.

For Organisations

Giving a group of colleagues this unique opportunity to learn together and develop a set of practical responses to the challenge of climate change will ultimately save the organisation money, make the organisation more resilient, improve the organisation’s reputation, enthuse and motivate staff.

On successful completion of the course, all participants will receive a certificate from the Carbon Literacy Trust and join a growing movement of linked individuals across the world who understand the basic science of climate change and are able to make rational, informed decisions about how we respond.
