If you feel that you need to do something to get you started on your journey to combat climate change and are working for or with an SME, then through this course you will get the knowledge and tools to set you off on the right path. No previous environmental knowledge is needed.
Carbon Literacy is: “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.”
Over 19,000 citizens and 52 organisations have already been certified Carbon Literate so far, with over 1,566 organisations being engaged.
By the end of the course, you will:

• Build your own climate pledges to take action on climate change
You will also be able to:

• Start collaborations
Training will be delivered online via Zoom through 3 x 2 hour sessions, and 2 hours of home-based activities, which are required to complete the course. It will consist of a mixture of presentations, group activities, videos, quizzes and games.
Please ensure you have a WiFi/internet connection and adequate equipment that enables you to fully participate in the course (it is not recommended to do the course via iPhone/Smartphone). You will get the best out of the course if you use a laptop or PC (with a camera).
