11 April | Decarbonise! – ‘Carbon Literacy’ open course
“An awareness of the climate change costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions on an individual, community and organisational basis.”
The Carbon Literacy Project aims to ensure that everyone who works, lives, or studies in Wales has the opportunity to explore what the reality of climate change means for them in their home-life and work-life. Individuals, communities and organisations are helped to take action to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses; and to prepare for the local impacts of global warming.
The “Carbon Literacy Project” has achieved international recognition and is now an established movement for change in greater Manchester, Scotland, the BBC, and the BAFTA network of film and TV professionals, with new networks established in Canada, Holland and France.
In Wales, our course has been done by the National Museum of Wales, Public Health Wales, Tai Ceredigion, Grwp Cynefin, Acuity Legal, Welsh Government, Trivallis, Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd, Social Farms and Gardens and many more.
