    In these times when the world as we knew it has undergone instantaneous change, we need to focus on changes that will make the world a better place for all and link the COVID-19 recovery with a transition to a low-carbon economy while addressing social inequalities at the same time.

    The Carbon Literacy Training Programme equips you with the information and skills needed to make these high impact changes in your work (for example research, teaching or consultancy work) in order to reduce carbon emissions along with addressing multiple other SDGs. A certificate is given upon full participation and completion of the training.

    Topics covered:
    • Positive Futures Scenarios and Climate Justice
    • Climate Science and the matching high impact climate solutions
    • Carbon Calculation and individual action
    • Climate Change Mitigation: a systems approach
    • Your own Action Plan
