    Dear all,


    We are excited to introduce you to the Climate Literacy Training (CLT) program and are hopeful for your support in promoting CLT. 


    Originally developed as a PRME Champions subgroup project, with leadership from Nottingham Business School in the UK and other stakeholders, our Climate Literacy Training leverages a "train-the-trainer" approach to help academics, students, and other participants quickly become "Carbon Literate". Once literate, the programming encourages them to adopt pragmatic climate solutions in their own life and work. Invitations are sent to universities and business schools for regional events so participants can become trainers in their own institutions or become involved in training in other regions.


    Training typically takes place over four online sessions and includes the following topics:

          The basic science behind the climate crisis;

          The impact different sectors such as food have on our climate and vice versa;

         The En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator

          Climate Change mitigation tools for your discipline or/and function;

          Solutions with the highest impact;

          Strategies and skills for communicating and/ or teaching climate actions; and

          Your personal possibilities to take action privately and in your current/ future role.


    In addition, participants who complete the training and the assessment form will be eligible to receive a certificate issued by the Carbon Literacy Project.


    In the year 2023, we are thrilled to announce two Carbon Literacy Training sessions for Americas: one completed in June-July with 100% pass rate and the other scheduled in November-December. To register for our upcoming training sessions, please mark your calendars for Wednesdays starting on November 8th, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm (EST).
